Goat Peak Trail #1304

  

SETTING: Ridgetops, large timber, open hillsides, clearcuts.

The Goat Peak Trail begins at Forest Road 4315 and ends at District Boundary Road in Section 26. The trail climbs northeast from the ridgetop saddle up and around the mountainside, then stays close to the ridgetop as it winds north toward Goat Peak. At the 2 mile point is the junction with Big Goat Trail 1304.1, which heads south. This 2.3-mile hiker-only trail heads downhill and links up with Big Creek Trail 1341 in the valley bottom. Big Goat Trail is no longer maintained and is very difficult to find in spots. Trail 1304 continues past this junction and soon dives downhill in a series of switchbacks to a saddle. From there, it follows an old access road up the ridge to the old lookout site. The old Goat Peak fire lookout has been moved into the Teanaway.
