Comments
Comments: Ascent up the Wildcat RIdge is steep and hard but the trail was dry and views stunning. Descent to Carter Lodge was tricky as a rain shower had passed thru and rocks were slippery. The best part was a swim at the dam on 19 Mile brook. It felt good to wash off the sweat of a hard hike in the bracingly cold water.
