Directions: Hampton, TN is located between cities of Elizabethton and Roan Mountain on Highway 19E. Once in Hampton, turn north onto route 321/67 toward Mountain City. Drive 0.8 miles and turn right immediately in front of the Citizen's Bank onto Dennis Cove Road. Take this incredibly curvy and steep road for about 5 miles. (At 4 miles in, you'll pass by a parking area on your left for the trailhead to Laurel Falls -- soon after that, you'll pass by Laurel Fork Lodge on your left). At 4.6 miles, if you look carefully to your right, you'll see a trail heading up into the woods which leads to Coon Den Falls. At 4.9 miles you'll see a gravel parking area on your left immediately before crossing a single lane bridge which leads to the Dennis Cove Campground. The trailhead is to the right of the bridge and is well-marked.
