History and nature converge on the Iron Goat Trail unlike anywhere else, a tribute to both the beauty of the environment in its pristine condition and man’s amazing ability to transform it. Hiking the Iron Goat is like exploring a living museum in the wilderness, showcasing some great engineering achievements and the men who changed the world forever by building them. Throw in wildflowers, high mountain views, and a virtually flat, singletrack trail, and the Iron Goat is an absolute must for any Washington State hiker.
