When I traveled the LaurelHighlandsScenic Byway it was great to see mother nature show her colors on such a grand scale. Driving a car through this byway allowed me to see one vista after another. I felt like I was flying free from vista to vista.

Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail Pictures

When I arrived at the Eastern segment of the 79 mile LaurelHighlands hiking trail I knew that this would be a hike to remember. There were many beautiful ups and downs the ten miles that I hike towards the West.

The afternoon got late so I turned around to hike back to the car. I came back pumped from the experience. This was a place that few people have hiked and I knew that it was an honor to have hiked it.
