We followed Hunt Fish Falls Trail (263) for about a mile down to Lost Cove Trail (262) right above the waterfall and got out on the exposed bedrock. There were a lot of people here swimming, sunbathing, and enjoying the falls. All of the primitive campsites around here were full as well. Hunt Fish Falls is ...
