Hands down the best views of the Goatrocks for the effort! Bring a vehicle with clearance though, the last two miles get rough.

Super flat and easy for 80% with most of the elevation gain happening right at the end. The loose volcanic rock on the ascent is a frustrating, but it passes quickly. Enjoy the view but bring a jacket for the top!

Getting to the top was the difficult part but, the views and stillness of the forest make up for the struggle to get away from every day life. You pass a quiet and peaceful pond at your first scenery. Next is a clearing with meadows and flowers. Next time we go, we're going to hike the whole trail. We went 4-5 miles in and back. Getting back was so much easier!

Super easy hike. Pet friendly. Not too hard on the knees. Cave was small and not too scary. Didn't see any bats. Views to cave are amazing! Signs with history and a great plus!

Trail description says NO DOGS, but this trail is technically outside of of the park boundary and according to WTA.org, dogs on leash are allowed. I suggested an edit, but there was no place for comments to explain the edit.

This is not moderate in my book. Lots of loose, sliding shale. Trail is definitely NOT moderately trafficked. You are on your own, unless rattlesnakes count. This is for dedicated backwoods hikers who like a little more challenging terrain. Discover pass required.

Great trail. Long way to get to the lake.

12 Aug 2017: clear trails, no mud, snow-free.
Follow the PCT south from US12 and skirt the edge of White Pass ski area on your way up. Once out of the forest those views hit you smack in the face and it is beautiful. I was giggling to myself after gaining the ridge above Hogback Mtn. Totally worth the effort, mosquitos will find you so keep on truckin'!

This was an AWESOME experience!
Hike isn't too bad my 3 year old twins love it. Make sure you wear comfortable sturdy shoes that you don't mine getting wet, if you want to see the water fall.

Great hike with a few steep parts, such as the climb out of the caves. The Kiddos will get a kick out of the caves

I've taken this drive 4 times now. I love wildlife, and this is a perfect opportunity for that. I've camp up there too.
If you take it from white pass it's like 8 miles to the top, if you take it from Nile (chinook pass hw) it's double the distance, id recommend drive up from white pass hw and come down the longer way towards Nile, be careful with crazy drivers taking the downhill corners to fast... I've seen elk up there, coyotes, squires, chipmunks, pikas!!!! :) grouse, jays etc and once u up there I'd recommend adventure yourself into rd 190 all the way to the end is timberwolf mt, amazing views, and also mt goats can be seen up there, if you didn't have any luck try rd 199, I've seen them there too.

Full moon hike up goat peak to American Ridge. Trail was easy to follow with scenic views the whole way. No blow downs.
