Wildcat Canyon Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"A high-country day hike or backpack from the Hop Valley trailhead to Lava Point. This trail runs across the high country between the Hop Valley trailhead and Lava Point, linking the Hop Valley and West Rim trails and providing access to several primitive canyon routes. The Northgate Peaks make a worthwhile side trip."
--Erik Molvar & Tamara Martin, Hiking Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks (Falcon Guides).
"A long day trip following a wilderness route down Wildcat Canyon. This route makes a challenging day trip across a stark and forbidding landscape dominated by the bone-white cliffs of the Navajo Formation. The hike is hot and dry during summer, with little water available along the way. Travelers are advised to carry more water than is really necessary. Climbers can use this route to access the upper reaches of the Right Fork canyon via a low pass to the west of Greatheart Mesa."
