Discover Pass required at both Wildcat and Gold Creek Trailheads. Both are high car prowl areas.
A trail system in Kitsap County on DNR owned Green Mountain. Climb Wildcat Trail for 1100 feet of gain in 4.5 miles and get a great view of Bremerton, Seattle, and on just the right days, Mt. Rainier and Mt. Adams.
Mixed use including motorized, hiker, and equestrian.

Wildcat is used by motos (rocky, may be loose in places) - Beaver Pond has more roots, fewer rocks, but is not loose.
DNR owns the land and encourages local user groups to help maintain the trails. Evergreen West Sound of course pitches in on that effort.

I would definitely recommend mid-week, or morning on Weekends to beat the crowds. I rode up Wildcat, encoutered one mo...
Some standing water in spots and a bit soggy today, but Green mountain seems to drain really well. I'm surprised this ride isn't listed as a good winter ride. Its one of the few places that you can get decent descent during winter/spring when everything is snow packed or turned into a river...
