    Route Description for Goat Ridge

    The hike up Goat Ridge is a steep route near Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park that will take hikers up to two scenic lookouts before reaching the top of the ridge. The trailhead can be a bit tricky to find, as it is located in a heavily forested area just off the side of the highway and once you do find it, you will set off on a very steep incline up to the ridge. Along the route there are five technical sections with rope installations to help with traversing some large rock formations.

    Once you reach the lookouts, you will have amazing views over the Chilliwack, Lindeman, and Greendrop lakes, as well as nearby mountains like Mount Webb and Mount Meroniuk. From the top of the ridge, you will have even more beautiful views that reach out in every direction. This hike may be tough, but it is an amazingly scenic climb that is less busy than other routes in the Chilliwack Lake area.

    To reach the Goat Ridge trailhead from Chilliwack, drive south on Vedder Road and take the second exit on the roundabout. Once you are on Chilliwack Lake Road, continue on for 39.4 km to where the trailhead can be found on the left side of the highway.
