Cathedral Rock/Peggys Pond Professional Review and Guide

"Doggy paradise, this trail is. Meadows, rivers, and lakes. Smooth trails, gentle climbs, and a lot of grassy pastures in which to roll and romp. Oh, you humans will like it, too. The route offers a taste of some of the finest meadows, prettiest lakes, and craggiest mountains in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, all in an easy hike along a picturesque ridge."

Bushwacking and route finding. Trail is not maintained beyond 2 miles, and crosses many game trails. Quiet, hardly anybody goes up there (we were alone all weekend). Beautiful wildflower meadows and year-round creek (no fish so doesn't attract fishermen). Black bears present (track and scat, I encountered one at midnight that was lurking around the meadow near the tent but they weren't aggressive). Scramble up to the pass for views of the cascade crest, and west side of Mt Stewart, or up higher to Fish Eagle Peak on North side for 360 views. There is no lake destination to draw people (most do it as a day hike). Best features are meadows, creek, and no people. Best place to camp are upper and lower meadows at the valley head (separated by about 400ft cliffs with steep trail).
