Description

The Wildcat Canyon Trail begins on the North Rim at MG-15. It crosses the saddle between Wildcat and Bugaboo canyons and follows the south side of Wildcat Canyon. At 1.1 miles, situated in a small drainage, is Camp B3. There is a fire ring near the trail and a little water nearby. At 1.4 miles, the trail breaks out into the meadow. The park maps show the trail going southwest to the lake, but it has been rerouted.

Instead, the trail crosses the meadow, enters the woods and heads southeast. It reaches Bugaboo Canyon Creek at 2.0 miles. Bugaboo Canyon Creek flows along a dipping bedding plain of Jackfork Sandstone and is some of the best water in the NSRA. At 2.2 miles the trails joins with the Whiskey Flat Trail at Camp B2. A hundred feet later the Whiskey Flat Trail goes east and the Wildcat Canyon Trail continues south. At 2.5 mile, the trail crosses rocky Little Bugaboo Creek, another good water source. The trail ends a little further into the woods and up a small climb at the Rocky Point Trail.
