I've been staring at the Lost Cove escarpment, and contemplating bushwacking down to the precipice from the Blue Ridge Parkway, but then rational thinking sets in.  This TR reminds me how deficient Catawba streams can be.

There's no need to start at the parkway.  You can come down off Roseboro and get down there pretty easily.  Some of those catawba streams are really great, then you go just over the next ridge and the drainage is complete doo doo.

GK, the section I'm interested in is the portion between the 2800'-3250' mark. There are no trails in, or along the creek. Just a crazy steep creek that I doubt is ever fished. Heck Tranny won't touch this one.

I never touched that part of it 35 years ago when I was down in that entire area bushwhacking quite a bit. Very steep, rocky, and difficult. I wouldn't dream of it now, damn it.  :embarassed:

That top part of Lost Cove looks like an easy hike off the BRP.  Topo lines aren't that tight.  Get to it boys.
