Goats Rocks Circuit (Backpacking) Professional Review and Guide

"Nestled along the Cascade divide south of Mount Rainier, the Goat Rocks are the spectacularly eroded remains of an ancient volcano. Nature’s sculpting by ice and water has left behind a beautiful region of jagged peaks, glaciers, and mountain meadows.

The area was named for the mountain goats that live among these crags, but the wilderness is also home to a healthy population of elk, black bear, and all the other wildlife common to the Cascade Range."
