Great hike! We took Wildcat Ridge to Polly trail and it took about 1 hour and 40min with a few pit stops. Wildcat is steep at first but the rest of the hike was a breeze. Lots of cool rocks and moss. Total loop was about 2.3 miles. Enjoyed it a lot!

We enjoyed the first part but the last part of the trail has a steep incline for quite a way. It’s much longer than the map leads you to believe, 2.5 miles instead of 1.5 according to my pedometer. We thought we had missed the Wildcat trail that would loop us back and almost turned around.

Me and a friend walked this trail and it had a beautiful view of a creek as well as some awesome looking rock formations (that are easily climbable) to get an awesome view! Great trail!

The trail was nice, we were a little confused on how to get down when it crossed with another trail, but we ended up going down the side that looked like it decended and made it out. It was very peaceful and had lots of nice rock formations to walk near.

A nice hike through the woods with some steep climbs. We connected to Wildcat Ridge to make a loop

No dramatic scenery, but a pleasant walk in the woods. We connected to Wildcat Ridge to create a 2.5 mile loop
