Backpacking the Goat Rocks Wilderness

Backpackers Following the Trail hiking toward Mount Rainier in the distance of the Goat Rocks Wilderness.

If you’re into wilderness backpacking and you have not been to the Goat Rocks Wilderness of Washington State, you’re missing out. It is potentially the best backpack I have ever been on (and that includes the one I did in Patagonia, Argentina!). Here, you’ll find long-distance hikers trekking along the Pacific Crest Trail, endless mountain vistas, vast expanses of alpine wildflowers that seem endless before your eyes, and incredible views of glaciers, snow-capped peaks, and even frozen lakes.

Time of Year: Due to the elevation of the Goat Rocks Wilderness, it is recommended to begin your backpack in July. Otherwise, many mountain-side traverses will still be covered in snow and additional safety equipment will be required.

Like these photographs? Head on over to Natebushphoto to see my new photography website and even purchase Fine-Art Prints! Not looking to buy a photograph? That’s alright, head over to my Facebook Page and throw me a “like” and I’ll still love you forever 😛
