We hiked in from the parking lot at the fish hatchery on Thursday night. This is a very easy hike in at night. From the parking lot facing the fish hatchery, proceed through the gate to the left. After crossing the bridge, Cat Gap Loop begin on the right. We set up camp on the right just before the trail takes a sharp right across a bridge on the right and just before the junction with Butter Gap trail on the right. As you will see, there are plenty of campsite including one on the left just before this one down by the river and waterfall.On Friday, we put on our day packs and proceeded down Cat Gap Loop. At the junction with Cat Gap Bypass we continued to the right on Cat Gap Loop. Near the top, an unmarked trail to the right goes to Cedar Rock Mountain. We took that trail to Cedar Rock Mountain. The trail is not well marked at all. After enjoying lunch on a blad to the left of the trail and some views atop Cedar Rock Mountain, we spent some time trying to find the way down. We proceeded directly ahead on what appeared to be a well traveled trail marked with blue ribbons. However, after not seeing any official markings, and seeing that we were off the GPS trail, we returned to the top and followed the GPS trail which went straight down the rock face. We were able to crouch, crawl, slide down the rock face to the trail below. It was quite a rush! From there, we followed a trail marked with red ribbons. This trail lead to the bottom of the mountain and keeping right arrived at junction of five trails. One was unmarked (immediate left), the Art Loeb Trail (left and straight), another unmarked at about two o'clock facing the straight on Art Loeb Trail, and Buttergap trail to the right. We took Butter Gap Trail back to our camp site. On the way there is an fantastic waterfall about a mile before reaching the trail junction with Cat Gap Loop.On Saturday, we packed up camp and took Cat Gap Loop to Cat Gap Bypass to John Rock trail up to the top of John Rock Mountain. You actually top John Rock Mountain and start down the other side before finding the trails to the left which actually go out onto the rock. The first trail to the left actually goes to a campsite and not onto the rock. There are three other options the lest of which probably provides the least treacherous access to the rock. There we joined several other folks who were already enjoying the beautiful view. Directly across you can see the breathtaking view of Looking Glass Rock. When John Rock is dry, you can venture out and sit and enjoy. After enjoying the view, a snack, and a rest, we proceeded back on John Rock trail down the mountain. John Rock Trail eventually joins back up with Cat Gap Loop and back out to the parking lot.
