Goat Mountain (from Bare Mountain)

A difficult scramble due to being all off trail, requiring creek crossing, brush, and navigation challenges at the end of a long remote, rough road. About 7 miles, 3600' gain. Arrive at a viewpoint of much of the western half of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness.


Drive the North Fork Snoqualmie Road (check road conditions prior to trip to be sure the road is passable) to about 1/4 to 1/2 mile before the Bare Mountain trailhead.   

Ford or find a log crossing of Lennox Creek; challenging and potentially dangerous early season.

Find path of least resistance up through blowdown and brush until breaking out into meadows.  Follow the path of your choice to the summit on snow or meadow, depending on the season.
