The first quarter mile is on an old road which intersects with the Elliot Creek Trail, an alternative route. At about three and a half miles, the creek trail reconnects from below. At this point the trail enters an old growth forest just before you reach the lake, here is impressive McIntosh Falls. Goat Lake is a cirque style lake that has a history of mining, having been found by miners coming over the cliffs from the town of Monte Cristo.
