Welcome to the Wildcat Hollow Hiking Trail. This trail offers two options; a 15-mile loop of scenic trail along ridge-tops and stream bottoms, and a short five mile loop for day hikes. Both trails will lead through tall pine forests, open meadows, quiet streams, rock outcroppings, and down old roads overlooking miles of beautiful landscape. You will also pass some of our land management activities. Wildflowers are at their peak in the spring, but we ask that you not pick them so that others may also enjoy them. The hiker who treads softly can often catch glimpses of the wildlife who call the forest home. Bring your binoculars and enjoy your visit. This area is one of the recommended wildflower viewing areas on the Forest. Dispersed camping is allowed at the Wildcat Hollow Trail and Trailhead. When parking, help prevent damage to the grassy areas by staying on the gravel surface. Restrictions: Stay on the gravel surface when parking for hiking or dispersed camping at the Wildcat Hollow Trailhead.
