Once the site of a U.S. Forest Service lookout, Goat Peak’s 6,473-foot summit showcases such impressive gems as the Goat Rocks, Bumping Lake, Mount Rainier, Fife’s Peak, and the Stuart Range.

The Goat Creek trail ascends at a moderate pace from the Bumping River valley up to American Ridge and Goat Peak. This approach to the ridge and peak offers much more solitude than the more popular trails from the north.  Goat Peak offers expansive views into the William O. Douglas Wilderness and beyond.
