Goat River Hike and Trail Clearing, near Crescent Spur - Saturday, July 27th

Hiking the Goat River Valley.

Crossing the Goat River via cable car.

The Fraser Headwaters Alliance will be leading the walk and work to clear and repair the historic Goat River trail and boardwalk. The hike will take us from the beautiful confluence of the Goat and Milk rivers to a cable car crossing of the Goat, approximately 4km down the trail. This hike will cover the first bit of the main, 48km section of the trail, which crosses the Cariboo Mts., joining the Robson Valley with the Bowron Lake plateau. We will turn around at North Star Creek after enjoying a swim in the beautiful pools of water in the creek. Don’t miss this opportunity to be introduced to one of the area’s best kept outdoors secrets!

There is also opportunity to help with trail maintenance for those interested, which may include hauling lumber for the boardwalk repairs, as well as using a chainsaw, scythe and/or weed wacker to clear the trail.
