At A Glance

Difficulty Rating: 0.8
Steepness: Climbs Moderately
Tread Condition: Moderately Rough
Blaze Color: White / Yellow
Trail Number: 263


This trail is a co-signed as a portion of the Mountains to Sea Trail and takes you to a popular, yet small, waterfall on Lost Cove Creek.

From the well signed trailhead on FR 464, the trail descends moderately through a few switchbacks and then follows a tributary branch downstream partway and crosses it once on a stone bridge. The rich forest has a thick understory of mountain laurel and rhododendron from top to bottom. The trail swings away from the branch as it drops out of its hanging valley, then makes another switchback before coming out right at the top of Hunt-Fish Falls, a two-part, 6-8 foot drop. The trail continues to the middle and bottom of the falls, where a huge pool makes a popular swimming hole in the summer. The tributary branch drops over its own 50' falls and spills across the trail into the middle of Hunt-Fish. Lost Cove Creek is scenic at this point with a humongous boulder sitting at the top of the falls. The Mountains to Sea Trail continues past the falls downstream.
