Laurel Hill is a nice set of a few trails, it is made of 4 technical trails and respective connecting loops.
Technicals I will name them in the order of most to least difficult from my perspective and those are, Slaughter House, Giles Run, Power Station and Apple Orchard.
The connecting loops like the pasture are very much cross country stile, so one can get a very good workout as they can be ridden at high speed.
The technical one's are medium to low difficulty, however they are fun to ride with a nice flow.
Be aware of the fallen trees, a few weeks ago they were all over and trails blocked, however two weeks ago when I was there only Giles Run still had three trees blocking the trail, so at those points in one of them you will need to dismount, though I am hopping that soon they will be removed.
Maintenance on these trails seems to be reasonable and trails are in very good condition overall, rain water drainage seems to be very good as no major noticeable damage can be seen.
Another nice trail near Alexandria and worth trying.
