Hiking Washington's Goat Rocks Country

The view from Hawkeye Pt is Terrific. Views of St Helens, Rainier, Adams, Goat Rocks and GOATS! We saw about a dozen from just below the summit. Goat Lake still had a lot of ice and snow along the edges.
Goat Ridge trail is average. No water until you get close to the Lily Basin Trail Junction. The trip is longer but the views and water supply better if you go from the Snowgrass TH but that makes it a pretty long day hike.
Wear good boots. A bit of snow to cross and loose rock on the spur trail going to Hawkeye Pt.
