In winter, it may have snow or a lot of mud.

Description

A great way to access the top of Goat Mountain and the Goat Mountain Fire Tower.

From Oakhurst, follow the road to North Fork 42 and pass Road 222 to Bass Lake and continue straight. Pass the fire station and Hidden Meadows Road, and you'll find a fire road on you left. There is a green gate where the trail starts.

Later up, at an intersection, you can decide to go left and reach the top of Goat Mountain, which is a very steep trail or go down on the Goat Mountain singletrack "Ninja". If you do that you'll need a ride to get your car from the other side of the mountain.

If you go right from the intersection, you'll follow this trail map to the lookout tower. There are fun meadows to ride through before reaching the lookout tower; watch out for the sand bars.

Reaching the top is a good challenge that will be rewarding with amazing views. After that, everything is fun going downhill to the beginning of the trail. Also, this trail connects with Goat Mountain Trail and Spring Cove Trail, so you can make an alternate route with those trails. Take mosquito spray with you.
