This is a backcountry hiking/mountaineering trek which takes the goat ridge and connects with Copilot and on to Skypilot. It is not for the unexperienced or nervous. The trail takes the Petgill lake trail off hwy.99 east of Murrin park and follows the ridge all the way with spectacular views and interesting scrambling.
Walk on the east side of hwy.99 for about 100m north of Murrin parks parking. Look for a trail sign and the trail.

CommentThe trail branches off Petgill Lake trail to Goat Ridge. The Goat Ridge trail is is just a flagged route. It does not connect to Copilot and Sky Pilot Mountains. In places the trail is just a steep grovel holding onto tree roots and overhanging bush. I wouldn't grade it as extreme. It's more like a grovel to get up to the ridge but once there it's delightful hiking along the top. The drop off down to the col with Copilot is a mountaineer's route.
