This is an excellent early season destination. A picturesque alpine lake, Goat Lake is nestled between majestic Sloan Peak and the Monte Cristo group of peaks. The wide and easy trail is in excellent condition except a few wash outs (not a problem). This gorgeous trail passes through 2nd growth and some old growth cedar. The trail is quite flat for the first 4 miles, and then climbs gradually to Goat Lake in the last mile.
