Directions to Wildcat Wall

This wall is in property owned by USFS. Be respectful.
From the Sky Bridge Dr spur, drive 2.0 miles south along KY 715 toward the Mountain Parkway. Pull into the new parking area for the Wildcat Trail (#228) which will be on your right. Hike 1.5 miles down the trail until it intersects with Swift Camp Creek Trail (#219). Follow this trail left, north and downstream. Cross Wildcat Creek and go a few hundred yards to a thicket of rhodos. When rock is visible up to the left, bushwhack to the cliff and walk right. Alternatively, remain on #219 until you reach the far north end of the wall and walk left along the cliff to the climbs.
