    Zachary Hunter reviewed Cat Gap Loop

    about 3 years ago

    Went backpacking for the weekend with the kids (10 and 12). It was fantastic. Weather was great, though a little cold the first night. We parked in the Fish Hatchery (Wildlife Education Center) lot and went clockwise (leaving out the eastern side of lot. We left after school/work, and passed up several of the camping sites along the eastern side, then took Cat Gap Bypass to cut down on the elevation gain. Just be warned that there aren't any places to camp around the back (south) side of John Rock. At least, not on the bypass. We hiked all the way through the gap and down to the junction of Cat Gap Bypass and Cat Gap Loop. It was a bit of a strenuous hike with the full packs at 7:30-8:00 PM.

    Once we got there and got settled, it was great though. Day hikes up to John Rock and out to Cedar Rock Falls were lovely. We even did a couple GeoCaches along the way.

    All in all, it was a great place for our first ever backpacking trip with the kids. There's plenty to explore and you're never more than 2-3 miles from the car/lot/bathrooms. ;-) Next time, we'll go counter-clockwise since the west side of the loop appeared a little less populated and more level for a late start though.
