Lost Cove Hike


Join High Peaks to explore the abandoned settlement of Lost Cove near the Nolichucky River in northern Yancey County on Friday, November 11.  Lost Cove was settled after the Civil War and inhabited until the 1950s.  A few structures and several ruins still remain.  We will hike approximately 2.5 miles from the trailhead to Lost Cove then explore the ruins of the settlement before returning via the same route.  Total distance will be about six to seven miles.  This is a moderate to strenuous hike and includes an elevation change of 1500 feet.  Meet at the TownSquare at 8:30 AM where we will form carpools.  Bring lunch and water.  Rain date is Sunday, November 13.  Contact us at info@nchighpeaks.org if you have any questions.
