Hike above the crowds, a little longer than I thought it would be.
Beautiful morning in the foothills!
Great mountain right in my hood. With Tracy. Will do again this fall.
Fantastic hike, great peak!
This is a great conditioner hike for higher / more challenging peaks. A lot of ups and downs, plenty of scrambling, steep tugs up false summits... Going it solo in snow, breaking my own trail - I was good and tired by the end of the outting!
Did it as a warm-up for the summer season. I remember that it was a HOT day. This was a surprisingly fun mountain with a bit of scrambling opportunities.
I climb Goat several times a year. Always a good day. Everything from quiet scenic trails to some class 3/4 scrambling. My office is on the east side of Goat, so every day I look at it out my window. I love bringing friends up there to show them the Goat...it is so close yet no one knows about it.
still incredibly hot on the ridge - despite mid october, but nice to be so quickly in an isolated area so close to Denver
