Joyce Kilmer-Slickrock Creek Wilderness

I was sorting through some trip photos from last year and came across these from a trip I made into the Joyce Kilmer-Slickrock Wildernes last October. There’s some pretty good pics from that trip so I thought I’d share them.

Started the first day along the Slickrock creek trail. The first two pictures are of Lake Cheoah.

Do you remember how to find the trailhead to Slickrock Creek and Wildcat Falls? I would like to take a friend this week. Thanks!
