Highlight: Goat Peak East
Goat Peak East is the smaller and lesser-known neighbor of Goat Peak and offers expansive views into the William O. Douglas Wilderness, Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, and beyond. Although the road doesn't take visitors to the very summit, those who want a bit more adventure and don't mind a bit of scrambling can take a relatively short hike to the top. There’s no question about how the mountain got its name. The steep mountainsides require strong hooves and the energy of a mountain goat to traverse at any speed. If you look down on the sandy roadside you will see a plethora of hoof tracks of all kinds. You are very likely to spot members of the local elk population on this route. The trail starts near Easton Sno Park and gradually gains elevation as it meanders through the forest, eventually breaking out to scenic nearly 360-degree views. A plethora of primitive campsites make this trail a good choice for those seeking to spend a night out in solitude.
