Lost Cove Hike

On Friday, Nov. 11, 15 High Peaks members (and five dogs!) hiked to Lost Cove near the Nolichucky River in Yancey County.  We started at the trailhead on FS Road 278 and hiked first to Joe Lewis fields (first photo). We then proceeded to Lost Cove proper where we explored several ruins including the site of the old school/church (second photo, only the steps remain) and the cemetery (third photo).  Lost Cove is very interesting and peaceful.  We returned via the Devil's Creek Trail.  A sunny but cool day and a great hike!
