One of the most spectacular wild areas in the South Cascades, the Goat Rocks Wilderness encompasses over 100,000 acres of glacierclad craggy peaks draped with alpine lawns dazzling with wildfl owers, punctuated with sparkling tarns, and cut by cool cascading creeks. The remnants of a large ancient volcano, the Goat Rocks explode with stunning alpine splendor, luring legions of admirers from near and far. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas was among them—he immortalized the Goat Rocks in his writings. Cispus Basin is one of the area’s most enchanting places. And yes, there are plenty of goats here too!
