closed gift shop, we hiked up past the lodge to Wildcat Rocks Overlook and
stopped here to eat our lunch. The views
here are fantastic and it was a great spot to sit and eat. Far below, we could see Caudill Cabin deep in
the gorge. After lunch, we got back on
Bluff Mountain Trail and continued hiking southbound. The area is bald between the lodge and the
