The trail up through Jordan Basin to Goat Lake makes a wonderful outing for all hikers, but the open meadows and modest climbs are perfect for wildflower lovers and photographers. Why? Well, this route offers nearly everything you could want on an alpine ramble: vast wildflower fields, stunning panoramas that include towering glaciated peaks, high alpine meadows, cold alpine lakes, tons of birds and wildlife, and a good chance at solitude despite the incredible beauty of the route.
