A brief adventure on a mountain path, Azalea Trail begins adjacent to a small stone building that was constructed by the CCC in the 1930s. Mossy steps begin a meandering ascent to a series of interesting sandstone bluffs that form small natural shelters beneath a heavy forest canopy. Many large trees can be observed along the way and much of the trail passes above a handsome glen of hemlock and beech trees. The trail descends and emerges from the forest near the Laurel Cove Natural Amphitheater and follows a roundabout gravel path back to the point of origin. Elevation change of 100 feet and marked with pink blazes.
