Description

This trail starts from the Wildcat Trailhead and goes past the Northgate Peaks Trail junction, offering views of the Northgate Peaks as it winds through the ponderosa pine forest. It opens into the meadows before emerging onto the edge of Wildcat Canyon offering, sweeping views down into the deep canyon.

After crossing the canyon, the trail climbs slightly until connecting up with the West Rim Trail. This area has no established campsites but does require a permit.
