We did the Wildcat Trail later in the day as I imagine it would be very hot and sunny earlier with no shade coverage. We started at 6:40pm (sunset was due at 7:45pm) which was a perfect time, we were in shade for most of...More

Hiking shoes required. Not to difficult, mostly level except for the final 3/4 mile which is uphill. Early morning or late afternoon or evening is the best. Take your time and enjoy the view as you hike.
