Located only about 3 miles south of the Canadian border, Goat Mountain is a double summitted massif just north of the junction of Ruth Creek and the Nooksack River. Goat Mountain has a commanding view of Mts. Baker, Shuksan, Sefrit, Larrabee, Ruth, The Border Peaks, Tomyhoi, Slesse, the Northern Pickets, and an enless sea of other jagged, icy mountains. The West Peak has good trail to within the last 50 vertical feet from the summit. The last part traverses a permanent snowfield so an ice ax and helmet should be brought on either peak at all times of the year. From the top, it is an airy perch to some of the best views in the Cascades, being surrounded on all sides by other great mountains, and looking far north into Canada.
