Big Lost Cove Cliffs Trail
At A Glance
1.2 mi one-way
Difficulty Rating: 1.2 (More Difficult)
Tread Condition: Some Obstacles
Trail Number: 271
Ascends moderately through mixed hardwoods and then runs slightly downhill along the crest of the ridge on an old logging road. It descends steeply for a brief stretch into the flats right above the cliffs, in an open oak forest. There are a couple of old logging roads that diverge here; keep left at a couple of faint intersections to reach a fantastic viewpoint at the top of the cliffs. Grandfather Mountain looms in the background above Lost Cove. Stay back from the edge and don't trample the moss that grows between the rocks.
