The construction of the High Rockies Trail has created an excellent short winter only loop for hikers and snowshoers using the new trail and a return trail usually groomed in winter by the sled dog outfitter. The return trail is too boggy for summer use.
Start: Goat Creek parking lot on Hwy. 742 (Smith-Dorrien/Spray Trail) at Whitemanâ€™s Gap. There is a good snowshoe trail from Goat Creek parking down to the pond. It heads left about 200 m down Goat Creek trail at an obvious junction.
