Cat Mountain

Cat Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"Cat Mountain is a beautiful little peak that offers excellent views. Combined with the High Falls overnight trip, it makes a nice side trip or an extended day trip on its own. To add a bit more adventure to the hike, you can boat in from Cranberry Lake to Janacks Landing and bypass roughly 5 miles of the round-trip hike.

Hike in from the western terminus of the High Falls Loop in Wanakena or boat to Janacks Landing in the Dead Creek Flow arm of Cranberry Lake. The trail described here will be from Wanakena with a side note about boat access; boaters can pick up the trail and follow the description from the Janacks Landing intersection."
