The Black River is up due to snow melt right now, so making the crossings on foot would be very cold and unpleasant. We hiked only a short distance upstream from Wildcat Crossing. We were reconnoitering for a future hike we are leading for a group. I have backpacked from Bear Creek to Fish Creek, and from Fish Creek to the Black River and upstream from there, in July a couple of years ago. The area is worth many return visits.
