Cat Knob Trail

This lesser known, but beautiful 3.5 mile round trip hike starts at Bootens Gap on the AT in the central section of the Park and features wildflowers and nice views of the Conway river valley, as the route to the summit is hiked on the side of the mountain. At the summit of Cat Knob Trail are Mountain Laurel groves, old Chestnut Oaks and views to both the east and west. This is one of the higher elevated summits in the park and offers a good challenge. Park in the Bootens Gap parking lot between mile marker 55 and 56 on Skyline Drive.
