This is a steep trail which takes you to a really amazing lookout point. If you continue along the ridge past the lookout point, you will eventually reach Goat Mountain. On the route to the lookout there are 3 rope assist sections.

One of the best hikes. It's steep all the way to the summit. Fabulous views from 2nd half of the trail. Still lots of snow in the last 800mtrs. My buddy got injured as he stepped into the snow and hit some rocks. But , the hike is worth doing, has some breath taking views from the top.

Steep hike right off the get go. Was able to summit but there were quite a few spots with the snow melting near the top that you could fall through and didn't know if there was stable ground underneath the snow. Great views, with lots of different hiking terrain. Slippery and hard on the knees on the way down but really enjoyed ourselves.

This hike was HARD but absolutely worth it. We got to the second lookout, but there was too much snow to continue up to the peak. Total duration was 6.5 hours.

Went to the lookout at goat ridge. Didn't go the whole way up to the peak due to time constraints. Snowy and slippery in some spots and quite steep. Definitely needed poles and used microspikes for about half of it. Lots of whiskey jacks and a beautiful lookout!! Views worth the grind would work best to park about 100m before the Lindeman parking lot. We couldn't find the supposed creek crossing. Will be back to finish the whole thing!

I only went to the halfway viewpoint because I didn't have a enough time. it is very steep. sketchy on the descent. beautiful views and some great outcropped rocks to take pictures on!

Did this hike on October 30th, 2019. I didn’t make it quite to the peak, but there was a minimal amount of snow just after the first lookout. I didn’t have spikes but I would imagine you will need them within the next couple weeks if attempting the peak! I’d also recommend poles because the descent is killer. The hike itself is quite the grind, and there is a fair amount of blowdown after the first rope which makes it a little easier to lose the trail markers when you’re navigating around and over the trees.

Trail is in great condition! Take your spikes as snow/ice is already present. steep and several rope sections with some tree fall on trail. I didn't finish it today due to time but will definitely do again now that I've found the right start point!

This one is super hard. 8 km and 1100 m elevation. Usually hikes are the steapest at the summit. This one is steap all the way with decent amount of scrambling at the end. But views are worth the effort.

This is a steep trail which is relentless. There are 3 sections where ropes are in place to help not only the accent but to ensure on the return you dont go sliding down the terrain. Most of the trail in this section is in trees until the lookout.

Very steep, but rewarding hike. AS the name suggests this is a trail straight up a prominent ridge. Allow for more time to reach the true peak (still another hour more than this route). Great views of Chilliwack, Lindeman and Greendrop Lakes. Some minor scrabbling involved
