Didn’t do the whole loop. Started over near big lost cove cliffs, hiked up there for first camping spot, moved over to lower part of this loop counter clockwise. Swim spot at hunt fish falls 2nd day then camping near Gragg prong (not many tent spots up that way but needed to get back to the car in good time on the 3rd day) Could have been a 2 day instead of 3 day but we were hoping for better weather/more swim time.★ ★ ★ ★

Awesome hike, with lots of river crossings and large swimming holes. Plenty of fish to be caught here. Fly rod only. If you do the 7 plus mile loop I would recommend doing it counter clockwise. Over grown a bit bit. Recommend GPS.
Lost Cove - Gragg Prong loop
Close encounter with a timber rattlesnake on trail west of Hunt Fish falls. Unblazed and poorly maintained with lots of poison ivy once off the MST. A difficult hike with many obstacles.
