Follow the beautiful, subalpine Pinegrass Ridge from the highest trailhead included in this book to the boulder-strewn summit of Bear Creek Mountain. This route offers some of the best views to be seen of Goat Rocks. On the summit, at 7,337 feet above sea level, you will find a low rock wall windbreak. Phlox, dwarf lupine, and ground-hugging juniper grow from the rocky soil close to the summit. The summit of Bear Creek Mountain offers one of the best close-up views of Goat Rocks.
