A lot of the blame lies with me, in that I should have made better decisions before setting out on the "day-hike" and I probably should have called around asking for trail info on the route (which if anyone is concerned is Hunt Fish Falls (I think trip nine in the book).
While the Hike in is pretty much exactly as explained, the day hikes miss out on some pretty important information. Trails either aren't where the book indicates they are (either through not being maintained, or they just aren't routed the way the guidebook indicates). For one example, in this particular trip, a trail is shown as going from the Lost Cove Trailhead (above gragg prong falls) to roughly halfway between Lost Cove Creek and Bee Mountain on the Timber ridge trail. Unfortunately, the trail actually joins Timber ridge at the summit of Bee Mountain.
While ultimately I'm responsible for myself, It was disappointing to find the book so far off the mark of reality. If other backcountry beginners pick up this book, take it with a grain of salt, and research local trail conditions before you head out.
