This was my first backpacking trip. Did this trip on a thursday friday overnight. We stayed overnight at high falls the first night and traveled in a counterclockwise direction. We relaxed at high falls after hiking from 10-3 the first day and then hiked to cat mtn and out the second day from 930-3 . The deer flies and mosquitos were pretty bad but not intolerable and although it has been a fairly dry summer there were some very wet spots, mostly on the western side due to beaver dams, so yes waterproof boots are a requirement. The fishing at high falls did not result in any catches.
