|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Plenty of room at ski area. |
||Dry Trail, Wet/Slippery Rock, Mud - Significant |
|Water Crossing Notes:
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||No blowdowns, but lots of unmitigated erosion on the Wildcat Ridge Trail. A few broken bog bridges as well. |
||Not too bad (breeze probably helped), but I did eat a few no-see-ums up on the ridge. |
|Lost and Found:
||Ascended the ski area via the access road (Lower Polecat to Catnap to Middle Polecat to Tomcat to Upper Polecat), which was mostly dry and had lots of wildflowers in bloom. Took the short bushwhack from the top turn of Polecat to cut into the Wildcat Ridge Trail (and thus only climb D once).|
Wildcat Ridge Trail had plenty of mud and slippery ledge. Some dry stretches, but plenty of muck. Snow still visible in Tucks, as well as Gulf of Slides and east side of Jefferson.
Hot afternoon/evening, but breeze made things bearable.
