On Aug 10 I headed out to the Goat Rocks Wilderness. I had never been there before, so I did the quintessential (and very popular) Goat Lake loop, starting at the Berry Patch trailhead and heading up Goat Ridge trail and then back down Snowgrass Flats. I also took a quick trip up to Hawkeye Point and a few extra miles on the PCT. Total for the day was approx 17.5 miles and ~5000 ft of elevation gain. It was a Monday so I was hoping to escape the crowds, but I still saw a fair number of people out there. High season in the PNW!
