Jim, Little Slickrock Creek and the Stiffknee trail come in downstream of wildcat about a mile. We tried to go up to wildcat falls saturday afternoon, but the storm moved in and pushed us back to camp. The trail is not long, but the gradient in the last 3/4 mile is comparable, in my opinion, to some of the toughest trails in the park or National Forests. As my friend Dj said "they don't believe in switch-backs do they?".

I have seen some pictures of the special backpacks and read a short story about the stocking process. Pretty amazing what the CCC would go through to accomplish such feats.
