Goat River Trail.

Kitchener, 17 km east of Creston.

This Trail is ideal for mountain biking and hiking.

Trail description:

On Highway #3 from Kitchener Home Style Cafe, drive north for 0.8 km on Leadville Road. On your right hand site beside the high voltage power line there is plenty of parking spaces.

From here you start biking or hiking the Goat River loop.

Go up the Trail to begin of the flat area and make a sharp left turn, keep on going North.

In the old times this was a horse and wagon Trail for mining and other resources.

You must be careful on trail bends; there can be four-wheelers on a part of that Trail. The Trail goes along a ridge under shady trees with some views down to the Goat River. The Elevation difference from Goat River to the upper trail is one hundred metres. You can't miss, just keep left all the way North until you hit the Leadville Road again.

At this point you are half ways, you have traveled 4.5 km.

Now go one hundred metres South on Leadville Road, cross the grass to the right (West) in to the trees, then go fifty steps South and make a sharp turn to the West and ride or hike down that short hill, after one hundred metres turn left again and follow that Trail to its end. The last 2.8 km you have to use the Leadville Road South along the Goat River to your parking spot.

You are responsible for your own safety!

Use appropriate footwear and carry drinking water. Take a friend along. Have a nice day.
