Comments
Comments: I think I have found my new favorite trail. Wildcat River is a real gem. And I saw only one small group of backpackers the entire way from the lot to the hut. Shared A peak with one other person, and actually had D peak to ourselves for a short time also. IMO this is THE way to climb Wildcat. I will certainly return and take the ski trails back to the Bog Brook trailhead very soon.
