Description [Suggest Changes]

The Lost Cove Trail is a loop trail around Timber Ridge that follows the drainages of Lost Cove Creek and Gragg Prong Creek. About half of the trail is shared with with the Mountains to Sea trail and there are multiple waterfalls and swimming holes that can be found along this trail. The trail tread can be great in spots and very technical in others. There is also a big switchbacking climb up to Timber Ridge that will get the blood pumping. Be prepared for multiple creek crossings as well along the trail, and be sure to take time to enjoy Hunt Fish Falls and Gragg Prong Falls.
