Situated between Mounts Rainier and Adams, the Goat Rocks are the remnants of a large ancient volcano. Immortalized in the writings of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, the Goat Rocks Wilderness encompasses more than 100,000 acres of glacier-clinging craggy peaks, expansive alpine lawns exploding with wild?owers, and ribbons of sparkling, cascading, snow-fed creeks. Goats are legion here—hikers and horseback riders, too. Snowgrass Flat is one of the most beautiful and consequently popular spots in Washington’s South Cascades.
