Photos from a 9.6 mile shuttle hike that began off Hwy 215 north of the Blue Ridge Parkway, and ended at Graveyard Fields. For the first 1.5 miles of the hike, Andy and I followed an old trail that paralleled Flat Laurel Creek up to where it joins Flat Laurel Creek Trail. The trail begins immediately after a concrete bridge on Hwy 215, approximately 3.3 miles north of the Parkway. There's a small pull off on the right with room for a couple cars. The trail begins on the north side of the creek, and crosses it at a campsite about a quarter mile in, but we remained on the north side of the trail until vertical rock cliffs required crossing back to the south side.
