Nestled between snow-capped Mt. Rainier and Mt. Adams, the Goat Rocks wilderness is known for its stunning alpine scenery. One of the best sections of the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail #2000 (PCT) leads through the middle of the Goat Rocks wilderness. Old Snowy (7,930ft) and Gilbert Peak (8,201ft) are the most notable peaks in the area.
The Goat Rocks Clover route combines quite possibly everything you will want to see in the Goat Rocks wilderness into one big adventure.
