Beautiful lake at the top.

Great hike. Starts out with a relatively flat walk through forest, then gradually gets steeper after about 2 miles. The grade is never overwhelming, as there are many switchbacks. The lake itself is beautiful, as are the views along the way of the surrounding peaks. We went mid-September and the lake was clear and there was snow only up above on the higher peaks.

Backpacked to Goat Lake and was not disappointed. The last half mile or so is a tough climb up and you have to keep an eye out for the turn off, but the views of the lake are worth it.

As a beginner, this trail was challenging but so much fun and worth it. The lake at the end is beautiful, and the scenery along the way is breathtaking. I can't wait to do this hike again.

Great hike, for an beginner hiker took just over 3 hours in and just over 2 hrs out. With lots of pictures of course! Definitely gonna do it after the snow melts.

I love this trail. My 1st in the area. Lots of snow the last 1/2 mile to Sawtooth Lake. Took 3 hours round trip with a fast pace.
