This year is all about getting out in the backyard and exploring the surrounding mountains. Goat Ridge has been on my list for a long time. The Ridge is well known as a heli-drop that sends you into to a steep and technical descent trail called Disneyland. I headed out with a bunch of like minded people on an all day out and back mission to the top of the ridge. The final part of the climb onto the ridge was really steep with plenty of bike carrying to make our way out of the trees and into the alpine. We hiked all the way up the ridge and stopped for a swim and lunch at a small lake before a very long descent back down to the ocean.
