Laurel Creek Trail #446 is an 8.8-mile looping trail that begins directly behind the information kiosk at Rimel Picnic Area. The route is marked with blue trail blazes. The western half of this trail is fairly level and follows an old railroad grade along Laurel Creek and Lockridge Run. There are several stream crossings, but water levels are normally low enough to easily pass. The eastern half of the trail climbs and crosses Lockridge Mountain. Near the midpoint of the trail, there is an Adirondack-style shelter with a fire ring and picnic table. The closest water source is at the Pocahontas Campground.
