This is a trail system developed by the equestrian society who have a show park near by. Parts of the trail have been maintained by a group of mtn bikers (twisted shifters, et al) and have thus named it, or parts of it "the Goat Trail."

On this trail you will find one or two great potential spots for back country camping. Water is not readily in supply, so bring a supply.

The terrain consists of rolling hills and mixed forest. Near by, runs the West River. Because it's within a tidal zone, the water is brackish.

This is a year round trail. It's great for mountain biking and hiking when the snow is at bay, and is also great for snow shoeing during the winter months.

The trail connects to Strathgartney Provincial Park, and its trail which is also documented within trailpeak.
