Started to do the out and back, but turned it into a loop due to the crowds along the River. Some peaceful areas on the river were beautiful, but a lot of campers along the river and day trippers at the Hunt Fish Falls. Took Timber Ridge and Lost Cove creek back. Very peaceful trail with no one else on it. It is NOT marked so make sure you down load the map or it will be easy to miss the turns.

Did an overnight, ended up camping near hunt fish falls. we crossed the creek about 5 times. normally about knee deep. we turned it into a loop and took timber ridge back to the car. The alltrails map is wrong on timber ridge so I suggest a paper map and avenza maps.

Beautiful trail, parking is a bit limited, but so are the crowds. Due to recent rains I expect the several water crossings are a bit higher than usual. Either way, I recommend trekking poles for the multiple water crossings that can be above the knee at times with current. Ample camping spots and some of the best maintained access roads in Pisgah. Overall, an easy to moderate trail that I would do again.

Lots of creek crossing on this trail! Tons of campsites that were vacant. The water was very cold and strong flow from the falls. Definitely will be back!

Great trail. A bit understated on the mileage. My wife and I racked up around 7 miles with minimal stops. But a great trail and great experience! Would definitely do it again.

Great trail for the summer. Plenty of great swimming holes and campsites along the way.

Last Saturday of July. Hiked in around 3:00 pm with some friends and my dog. A lot of day hikers and a lot of other dogs. Camped out below the first pools featuring the waterfall that is commonly referred to as "the shredder". Pools above the falls are great for jumping and water was icy refreshing. There are a few creek crossings so heads up.

My family hiked this trail with our two dobermans. There was no other hikers, allowing the dogs to be off leash. You have to cross multiple creeks, which my 12 year old son found very exciting. It was a bit more time consuming, because we had to move some rocks to form a bridge to cross some parts of the creek /river. I highly recommend bringing walking sticks (or find one in the woods) to help you balance when crossing the creeks. The trail is mostly flat in comparison to other mountain trails, making it easier for my son. There is a nice waterfall at the end of this trail, which is a great place to have lunch. It took us 2.5 hours to get to the falls, mainly because we had to cross creeks and stopped to enjoy a smaller falls and swimming hole along the way. The way back only took an hour and forty-five minutes to return. Very beautiful hike- I hope it stays secluded! ❤️

Great trail but so many creek crossings it takes a long time. Very secluded. Didn't see anyone. Allow extra time depending on water levels

Did this in Reverse actually did a loop because of possible rainfall pressing a lot of creeks.
