The trail begins in oldgrowth Douglas fir and western redcedar. After 0.5 miles it passes underneath spectacular waterfalls, then follows Goat Creek. It crosses a small creek twice as it climbs to views of the forest below. The trail wanders near open meadows and rock cliffs before it meets with Goat Mountain Trail No. 217 south of Vanson Peak. The first 2 miles make an excellent day hike. This is also a good early season opportunity for hikers.
Wet in the spring. No bridges over stream crossings.
