The Goat Mountain Trail is a strenuous 3.2 mile hike or horseback ride. This south facing trail is one of the first in the area to melt out, making it a good early summer hike. The trail starts by switchbacking steadily up a timbered slope. At approximately 2 miles, the trail enters the Mt. Baker Wilderness. Continuing upward through huckleberries, the trail ends at 5400 feet on the shoulder of Goat Mountain. A few campsites are available after the snow melts, usually in midsummer. The panoramic views include icy Price Lake at the base of Price Glacier on Mt. Shuksan.

Directions: From Glacier, Travel east on Mt. Baker Hwy. 542 for 12.5 miles. Turn left on Forest Road #32 (Hannegan Pass Road). Follow Road #32 for 2.5 miles. The parking area is located on the left just past the parking area.
