High Falls-Cat Mountain Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This pleasant 3-day backpacking trip includes two waterfront campsites—one by the legendary Oswegatchie River and the other by Cranberry Lake—plus an expansive view from atop Cat Mountain into the Five Ponds Wilderness.The High Falls Loop and the side trip to Cat Mountain lie in the heart of the Five Ponds Wilderness. Few trails penetrate this remote area, which is known for its frequently flooded beaver ponds; fishing on the Oswegatchie River; and High Falls, where the meandering Oswegatchie briefly becomes a torrent as it crashes down a broad rock ledge."
