This 8.6 mile long trail begins on Road 2612 near Ryan Lake and immediately climbs steeply for the first 2 miles (1500 foot elevation gain) to the long ridge of Goat Mountain and then heads west along its southern flank offering views of Mount St. Helens and Mt. Margaret Backcountry.

The trail follows the ridge then descends to Deadmans Lake, near the junction with Tumwater Trail #218 at mile 5. It climbs again to the junction with Vanson Peak Trail #217A at mile 7. Just beyond this junction is the junction for Vanson Lake Trail #217B, a short spur (0.25 mile) south into the Vanson Lake basin, and the junction with Vanson Ridge Trail #213A which runs south to tie in with the Green River Trail #213.
Goat Mountain Trail #217 continues and ends on Weyerhaeuser Road 2600.

Disclaimer

Reports in 2017 indicate that trail is very maintained. Beware of bushwacking and trees to climb over!

       There was a avalanche/ landslide on the NF25 to the parking lot of Goat Mountain Trail. Crossing isn't possible at the moment.
