A 106,600 - acre alpine wonderland on the Gifford-Pinchot National Forest, the Goat Rocks Wilderness is a
portion of the volcanic Cascade Mountain Range in southwestern Washington
between Mount Raineer and Mount Adams. The Goat Rocks are
remnants of a large volcano, extinct for some two million years.
This ancient volcano once towered over the landscape at more
than 12,000 feet in elevation, but has since eroded into several
peaks averaging around 8,000 feet. This cluster of rocks and
peaks has become known as Goat Rocks because of the bands
of mountain goats that live there.
