Beautiful in and out hike from Horsepasture Rd down into the Eastatoe Gorge to Eastatoe Creek. The highlight is the overlook at “The Narrows,” where the Creek travels through a narrow rock crevice.
We'll meet at the Foothills Trail - Laurel Valley Trailhead parking area at 10:00 am. Go north of Rocky Bottom 0.9 miles. Make a hard left on Laurel Valley Road (just past a bridge). Keep right to get on Horsepasture Rd. Parking area is 0.3 miles on your left.
