Comments
Comments: A quiet day on the Wildcats and Carters--we did not see a single person on the trail until after descending from the Wildcats, despite the holiday weekend. Wildcat Ridge Trail still has sections of unstable monorail, but postholing wasn't a concern given the slightly cooler weather and an early start. There was one very short (10-15 feet) stretch of steep monorail near the base on the Wildcat Ridge that was slightly nerve wracking, but with careful foot placement it was manageable on the descent. We carried light traction but never used it (and there's definitely no need for snowshoes). As others have noted, the Carter-Moriah trail has a number of blowdowns which made wayfinding a little tricky in one spot, but a quick check of the map got us back on course. There was running water on the North Carter Trail.
