Pretty cool little trail for its elevation and proximity to Fresno. I'd expect early spring would be a great time to do this trail. If hiking in summer, start early. Consider a hat

simple trail. a bit of an incline. we only did the super short 1.9 mile one so in total we did 4 miles. I wouldn't recommend young kids for the whole hike.

There were many trees down but all but one had been cleared from the trail. Once you leave the road and head up the mountain the trail meanders joyfully among the trees. If you want to actually go to the peak of Goat Mountain when you reach the end of this marked trail, go right up a very steep dirt road. Follow the road all the way up about a half mile and you will see a tower. That is the true peak. Views can be seen on both sides of Oakhurst and Bass Lake.

First to Review

Good view of the lake almost the whole time. Would definitely recommend going all the way to the top of Goat mountain, the trail on the app just stops and turns around with not payoff. Nice view from the top of the high peak mountains in Yosemite
