“A winding route leading to Goat Rock, an interesting formation that is worth the visit.”— Kyle Schildgen
The route to the top of Goat Rock will eventually branch off to the west, as a series of stone steps leading to the lookout. Though a short side trip, the extra effort is well worth it, as views of open meadows and Indian Mountain are the reward.
Once you've had your fill at the overlook, continue on the descent until the trail reaches and end at the Gulpha Gorge Trail. From there, you can return the way that you came, or head west on the Gulpha Gorge Trail until you reach the road that leads back to the trailhead and your vehicle.
