Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"There’s so much attention on the Grouse Grind, you often don’t hear about Grouse
Mountain’s other trails. But with its 360-degree views and interesting rocky route,
Goat Mountain deserves the limelight. It affords a horizon-reaching vantage over
southwestern BC. Peaks seem to surround Goat on all sides, including Mount Baker,
Mount Judge Howay, Mount Cheam, and Mount Garibaldi. And who can argue with the availability of a celebratory beer at the finish line!"

"By starting from the top of the Skyride on Grouse Mountain, nonexpert hikers can savour the magnificent scenery from the Goat Mountain Trail, choosing a turnaround point to suit their energy and inclination. Those who have never ventured into the rugged country north of Grouse Mountain will be thrilled by this adventurous outing. Signposts and yellow trail markers help to keep you on course, but note that the much-tramped trail is a tangle of rocks and roots, best tackled wearing boots." Read more
