Overview

Features: Birding — Fall Colors — Wildflowers — Wildlife

Runner Notes

The eastern end of this trail is down in Swift Camp Creek Gorge and is difficult to self-rescue from. For the most part, this run is on the ridgetop and is technically easy.

Description

Wildcat is a great little run. You can pick it up from the Wildcat Trailhead or the Angel Windows or Rough Trail Trailheads to the north. You can combine this trail with KY 715 (paved) and the northern part of Swift Camp Creek Trail for a nice loop.
