Laurel Falls is a very nice 80-foot waterfall in two sections that is named for the mountain laurel that's present in the area. If you can visit in May when it's blooming, I imagine it would quite beautiful. The waterfall is pretty easy to get to, just 3.5 miles past Sugarlands Visitor Center and so very popular - expect a crowd here. From the parking lot, the trail is paved and 1.6 miles to the falls (and 1.6 back). Although the trail is paved, it's pretty eroded in some places. And the walk to the falls is mostly uphill, so this may be to challenging for some people. I'd rate it as moderate. The waterfall has two sections, upper and lower. The trail splits the waterfall on a footbridge that crosses at the base of the upper section. If you want to get down to the lower section, there is a steep unofficial trail just before the footbridge that leads down to the base of the lower section. Use extreme caution going down this way as it's steep and wet rocks can be very slippery. From down here it's possible to see both the upper and lower sections.
