Goat Rocks is the glaciated massif visible to the southeast from the Muir Snow field. This area accumulates large amounts of snow. As late as Memorial Day, the area is still locked in the grip of winter—lucky for us! The Goat Rocks tour is a comfortable 3-day trip with uncommon views of Mounts Adams, Rainier, and Saint Helens. Difficulties: High avalanche potential; routefinding required; permit / fee area.
