I rank this as one of the top day hikes on the North Shore. Despite the cloud cover later in the day, we had fantastic views to Sky Pilot, Garibaldi and Mamquam, the Tantalus Range, Robie Reid, Judge Howay, Five Fingers area above Pitt Lake. To the south we could make out Mt Rainier, and even the Olympics, floating above the Gulf Islands. We had annual passes for Grouse so getting up and down was "free" and though Grouse was busy, we left the crowds behind as soon as we headed for Goat. We saw maybe a dozen or so other hikers the rest of the day. The trail was kinda muddy in places, but that's to be expected given the rain we had this week. Some parts have slippery roots which require caution. Note that the powers that be on Grouse have relabelled the trails: follow the Alpine Trail to get to Goat Mtn and Ridge and to Crown Pass. (The so-called Ridge Trail goes up and over Dam and Little Goat, while the Thunderbird Trail heads out onto Thunderbird Ridge.) I was struck by how far

Doing the Grouse Grind was a good warm-up for Goat Mountain.Enjoyed changing scenery on way to peaking on Goat Mountain. The peak view was spectacular. Had great snack here as the top was rocky but relatively flat and large.

Icy conditions on the summit. We made it with snowshoes and poles with difficulty. We should have used ice-axes and crampons instead as the previous group that we met did. It is steep. On the way back, I slided the last section in high speed but one of my snowshoes got trapped in the ice. Luckily, it came off before my knee got twisted. Two of us summitted out of three.

Beautiful day up on Goat Mountain which is just beyond the Grouse Mountain Ski Area. To avoid the Grind crowds we hiked up the BCMC to the GM Chalet. From there we passed the bear enclosure on the way to the trailhead. We chose to go via Dam Mountain which is a little more elevation than the more direct route which skirts the mountain. Pockets of snow actually start right at the trailhead and there was quite a bit on the ridge but it was still quite manageable. Stunning 360 degree views from the top. Highly recommend this hike plus you can Skyride down and save the knees.
