Mount Seton or Goat Mountain (By locals) is the highest peak in the Cayoosh range.

Naturally, I want to summit it. With incredible views, lakes (Get your skinning dipping points) and awesome scrambling this seems like the perfect summertime adventure.

As the title mentions, I want to go to the lake the afternoon before and have a photo session with the lake and pretty views around (Also get a head-start for the next day). Complete the summit as a decent day hike or a chill overnight (More photo opportunities). Depending on what we choose we can plan when to leave accordingly.

This is a pretty chill trip so it will be open to beginners and hopefully more photographically inclined adventures (It’d be nice to waste time as a group rather than me slowing things down).

Goat Mountain itself isn’t a very well-known place since it’s so far out but here a few stats.


Elevation: 2855m

Gain: 1500m

Distance: ~15km Out-and-Back

Driving Distance and time (From UBC): 256km & 4hr → One way


I will update this page closer to trip with gear and other info.
