    The trail to the lower falls is pretty much as described by AllTrails, except that is was sort of busy on the Saturday we went. Eye-of-the-beholder notwithstanding, we had it on fair authority that the uppermost falls were not significant, so we were content to pass on the day we went. YMMV

    Nice out-and-back trail for an over-nighter, well maintained and easy to follow. While I went out to view the Persieds this year from the top of Cow Rock, I ended up taking a side trail southbound from there and coming to another bald with a great views and better hammock sites. While AllTrails describes the trail as out-and-back, I ended up taking it all the way to the Mountain Crossings store (I think about 6 miles one way). It's a nice trail after the bald spots, but no views to speak of. The water sources were dry at the time I went: make sure to pack all you need if it's been dry for a spell.
    Watch for snakes as there are dens among the more vertical outcrops. I met up with a timber rattler and a black racer.

    Great day hike or one-nighter. It's not a difficult trail, except for a few hundred yards of switchback at either end of the trail. I saw no-one on the Thursday I walked in, surprising given the perfect weather and fall colors. The next day was a different story, passing probably a dozen people on my way out.
    Good hammock hang-ups on the bald of Wildcat Mountain. There is a nice side trail just before you get to it, where you end up above a shear rock wall with a beautiful view. I took a nap there under a scrub pine, waking up to the view I uploaded.
    The Whitly shelter is great, with bear-proof cables on a pulley system to tie up the food, a strong spring a few hundred yards away, and an enclosed privy.
