The Hunt Fish Falls trail makes a steady descent all the way to the falls. You don’t realize how challenging it is until you come back out. But the prize is well worth the effort! This little beauty is located within the Lost Cove Wilderness Study Area. The cove is a black bear sanctuary, although it’s more notably known for the Lost Cove Cliffs. The cliffs are home to roosting peregrine falcons, rare mosses, and stunted pitch pine trees. To view the cliffs, visit the Blue Ridge Parkway overlook at milepost 310.
