backpack: Goat Rocks – Lily Basin + Goat Lake
Snowgrass Flats and Goat Lake / 2 night backpacking trip
This was a quick backpacking trip to Goat Rocks with friends and family. We started at the Snowgrass trailhead and hiked in about 4.5 miles to a campsite off the Lily Basin trail. It wasn’t the best camp, however, so in the morning we packed up and moved to a much more scenic location.
Day 1: hike to campsite from Snowgrass trailhead
Day 2: day hike to Goat Lake
Two of us did a short day hike to Goat Lake. The closer we got to the lake, the more wildflowers we saw. They were especially thick at Goat Lake’s outlet stream.
