Do you have any news on why this trail is signed as closed (Sept 2011)?

I am unable to find anyone in the parks office with information

Can't help you there. I would suggest the Banff office (you've done that) or someone in the Canmore town office. I will ask our biking editor if he knows anything.

The answer I just ran across somewhere is Goat is closed due to high water or a bridge out.. it was something to do with water / creek for sure.

Ah, here it is on the Kananaski Trail Reports:
http://www.tpr.alberta.ca/parks/kananaskis/trailreport.a spx

July 25th, 2011:

Goat Creek Trail and vicinity: Effective immediately, the Goat Creek Trail is closed from the Smith-Dorrien/Spray Road (Highway 742) to its junction with the Spray River Trail in Banff National Park. The closure is due to structural damage to the Spray River bridge which has resulted from abnormally high flows due to water diversion by TransAlta Utilities. For further information regarding water flows, please contact TransAlta at 1-877-547-3365.
