Known by locals as ‘The Old Mill Wheel’ or ‘The Steady Eddy, The Laurel River Store now serves fine coffees, espressos, teas, ice creams, snowballs, and more. You can also find supplies for paddlers and fishermen. And, pick up some local art or just a fun gift. The building has stood the in this spot since the ’40s, on top of Little Hurricane Creek serving as a landmark in Madison County. This is also right at the trailhead for one of the most popular hikes in the county—the Laurel River Trail.
