Goat Ridge Meadow

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Goat Ridge Meadow from above. This picture is taken from near the top of the Goat Ridge Trail where it joins the Lily Basin Trail. You can see the Goat Ridge Trail at the lower left, just below the stream. A side trail to several campsites is above that. There is a nice campsite next to the tarn.(Jerry Adams)
Goat Ridge Meadow from below. You can see the Goat Ridge Trail going up diagonally towards the center of the picture, where it joins the stream, as in the picture above. (Jerry Adams)
The Goat Ridge Trail gets fairly difficult just below the meadow area. (Jerry Adams)
On the Lily Basin Trail, just beyond where the Goat Ridge Trail ends. Goat Lake is just to the right of the picture. You can't see it until you get right on it. Very scenic alpine area. (Jerry Adams)



Located in the upper Jordan Basin, southwest of Goat Lake near the highest part of Goat Ridge, is a nice alpine meadow area, with a number of nice campsites.

This is a better place to camp than Goat Lake, because it is less windy and exposed to the weather if it gets bad. It doesn't say you can't build a fire, but there are so few trees, it would be a shame to do so.

You can get drinking water from the stream next to the trail.

There are a couple other campsites, near the trail, within a mile in the direction of Berry Patch Trailhead.
