|Stream Alongside Cat Gap Loop Trail|
I wanted a shorter hike (about 3 miles), so I made this a semi-loop hike, taking the Cat Gap Loop trail to John Rock trail, around to Cat Gap Loop trail again, then back to where I started. The route I took starts at the parking area for the Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education and the Fish Hatchery (both fun places to explore before or after a hike). A longer hike of about 5 miles, utilizes the other half of Cat Gap Loop trail.
