The Laurel Point Trail is a 1.3 mile, moderate difficulty hiking trail that is accessible from the trail head parking near Campground C, from the boat ramp area, from the Rock Spring Pond Trail and from the cabin area close to cabin 9.From the parking area the trail climbs several series of terraces and steps before leveling out out near the cabin area. The trail passes over former farmland, where evidence of plowing may still be visible. Hikers will be able to observe the succession of plantlife from low grasses to shrubs, pines, and finally broad leaf forest. The trail passes Rock Spring Pond and the intersecting trail before reaching the main park road.
