    Searching for gold on Goat Mtn

    Recently enjoyed a superb backcountry ride on the Goat Mtn trail system north of Mt St Hooligan. Be sure to add to your 2012 bucket list.
    Enjoy !

    I've always wanted to check this area out, but the drive from Portland has always killed it for me. Maybe a camping trip sometime would make it worth the drive up. I have ridden the Boundary Trail from Elk Pass to Norway Pass and the area is amazing.

    How well are the other trails in the area maintained, the Green River Trail, and the trails around Vansen Peak and Tumwater Mountain?
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    sesrching for gold...

    Maintenance is 'spartan'. I have heard of unsuspecting bikers being driven crazy by blow down, skeeters, ego crushing climbs and blistering heat.
    You, your bike, and partner must be on their A game.It's a long way from anywhere....
    Would I do it again ? In an heartbeat !

    PS -ALWAYS do the loop CCW .
    PSS- this year we did not drop into tumwater / goat creek-seeing the raw conditions on our trip, I suspect that extra 13 mile loop might be downright primal.
