Distance 7.8 km one way, height gain 217 m, moderate
A surprisingly pleasant point-to-point trail that meanders on old road beneath the Goat Range, passing an array of cliffs and buttresses. Across the valley rises the massif of Ehagay Nakoda, comprised of Ha Ling Peak and the many summits of Mount Lawrence Grassi. In our opinion, the best views are to be had by starting at Goat Pond and hiking toward the East End of Mount Rundle.
Start: Park near gate at Goat Pond dam or Goat Creek Parking on Hwy. 742 (Smith-Dorrien/Spray Trail) at Whitemanâ€™s Gap.
Note: This trail was ony constructed in the fall of 2015 and needs to consolidate and dry out. Expect muddy conditions in spring and after rainfall.
If you want a longer hike you can add the section between Goat Pond and Three Sisters Dam for a total of 10.8 km and 310 m height gain.
- Ha Ling and Mount Lawrence Grassi from the pond.
Please refer to the trail description in the guidebook, especially for unofficial, off-trail hikes.
