    The Laurel Canyon hike is 4.5 miles to the Laurel Lakes and the elevation gain is about 2700 ft. The trail is on an old mining road that hugs Laurel Mountain. I rated the hike only four stars due to the mining road, however the scenery in Laurel Canyon is five star spectacular. The first 1.5 miles is pedestrian as one marches up the moraine. Be careful of the “no-see-ems” as they can be nasty. Then the road takes a turn and the splendor of the canyon is exposed. You will be treated to a magnificent water fall/rapids and the valley is teaming with wildlife. During my hike the mountains were snow capped, the wildflowers in full bloom, adding to the peaceful setting. In summary a wonderful hike.
