HikingGreat!Snow

This is a great trail not too far off the beaten path in the backcountry on Grouse. Took us 3 hours round trip. Some fun and steep sections with roots and chains to assist you, but nothing too crazy. Gorgeous views at the top looking down on the Eye of the Wind. Great hike if you are short on time but want something not super busy.

Clearly marked. Solid challenge. Very cloudy today so we didn’t have the views but it was stunning just the same to see the mountains peek-a-boo every now and again from the top. As mentioned, bring bug spray.

This was a great hike other then the bugs . Definitely bring bug spray . I ended up going all the way too goat ridge peak with a stop at goat mountain. All together took me 5.5hrs with two 30 min beaks one at goat and one at goat ridge peak. Also started from the top of the skyride. Recommend taking easy route down from goat mountain which is painted on a rock. Having the ropes, chains does make the scramble up easier as well.

Amazing trail, lots of rocks. Reccomend high top boots for ankle protection. Wasnt in any rush, made it up in an hour and a half and back down in just over an hour. Amazing panoramic view but can be quite windy and cold in when cloudy. *LOTS OF BUGS, BUG SPRAY IS A MUST*

The view is incredible! Completed July 24th and the trail was in great condition. A few somewhat challenging scrambles but do-able if strong willed! Bugs are crazy up here!

As of today June 22nd, Grouse Mountain is now open. Check the website for details about a new reservation system for the skyride. Without a reservation, wait times for a download could be quite long. (or maybe with one too ;)

We hiked from Lynn Canyon along the Baden Powell, up Cascades and then up to Goat Mountain the trail was a little muddy and icey at points but the snow made it so beautiful! Was a little hard on the knees on the way down though. From the top of Grouse it took us 3 hours with a stop at the top for a picnic!

Great day hike with challenge and rewarding views. Taking the Grouse Grind or the BCMC will add an hour to hour and a half of the hike. 4-5 hour hike depending on stops. Alpine trail to Goat offers and easy trail without much elevation changes. The Ridge trail is more difficult due to the elevation changes along the way. The trail is fairly well marked and moderate up until the ascent to Goat mountain. From there it is a bit of a steep incline and scramble to the top and ropes/chains that are on the trail are useful to use when climbing up. Amazing hike with lots of great views of the surrounding area.

I climbed the Grouse that day thru the Skyline trail. I wanted to get to the Crown Mountain but did not have enough time. So, I went to the Goat Mountain. Wow. Super cool view of the Baker and the mountains to the North. Loved it.

Best trail in the Grouse area. Some rugged areas requiring some scrambling. Not recommended in winter or spring.

The peak was covered with clouds, so not much of a view. The trail was steep full of roots and loose slippery rocks. Other than that it was a piece of cake.
