Located between Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier, the Goat Rocks offer spectacular alpine scenery; beautiful meadows, clear lakes, mountainous peaks, and expansive views. The Goat Rocks feel unique for this part of the Cascades; unlike the singular volcanoes, such as Rainier, Adams, and Hood, the Goat Rocks is a string of peaks along a jagged spine that is really it's own mountain range.

A number of great loop trips and trails offer access to the area, giving access to Goat Lake, Snowgrass Flat, McCall Basin, and Mt. Gilbert. While the Goat Rocks do receive a fair number of visitors, it is often quieter than other adjacent wilderness areas that are more easily accessed by the Northwest's metropolitan centers.
