Short and stout, worth every bit of its 200 feet. Goat is actually two humps worth of trail. Both of which are great hike-a-bike runs for the DH bike. The upper hump is steep and fast and as the lower hump. Both can be chunky and will present at least one Oompa Loompa. Good rocky run fun. For the serious climber Goat is very real. Only the best technique and fitness will get you over both humps on the bike.

This social trail is currently unsanctioned, but parts of its alignment are planned to be adopted in coming years as part of the Guadalupe Perimeter Trail according to the South Mountain Trails Master Plan.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!
