The purple blazed Laurel trail is an alternative to using the Splice to traverse the park. However, there are some steps to portage over near the eastern end. Laurel roughly follows Shank's Creek through the park and is fairly flat with a few short climbs. One of the original Civilian Conservation Corps trails built in the 1930s along with Coquina and Hilltop trails.

Access Info

Can be accessed via Coquina on the western end or Park Road near the eastern end. (Gate with stop sign near park entrance.)


Laurel is not typically ridden on bike due to steps near the eastern end and is primarily a hiking trail.
