Remote and beautiful with multiple river crossings to challenge your balance and the effectiveness of your boot tread! Jumping rock to rock was fun and wet at times! Often you are on the edge single file with a steep drop-off above the river. We are not blind nor are we stupid- the trail is poorly marked! Yes, lots of great white trail markers but none where you make the turn to come back around the second part of the loop towards post hike happy hour tailgate-style! So... we ended up on Lost Cove for a while- great name btw! Future great swimming holes! The gravel road to get there was scenic in its own rite! Fun day, enjoy!

Great hike along some beautiful waterfalls with lots of swimming spots. Not marked very well and really easy to off on the MST and not on timber ridge.

Trail was a little unclear at first, but ended up being an amazing trail with plenty of spots beside the river, also has a remarkable waterfall!

This hike is not for faint of heart. If hiked clockwise the last 2 miles are very steep up with the last mile also being very step down. It would appear that soil erosion has caused part of the problem because there isn't much to grip going down. The Lost Cove trail can be difficult to find on your right when you near the end of the Timber Ridge Trl at the top of the mountain. Be patient, it's there, it just doesn't get much use and starts you straight down the mountain.
