Goose Creek is located in beautiful Lost Creek Wilderness and a lovely trail that connects with additional trails for great backpacking.  We are hiking in and out, the Shaft House is our destination.

 The hike begins in the Haymen Burn Scar, then meanders while we follow Goose Creek. It is partially forested, we have views of the Tarryall rock formations.  There are historical buildings where the early town of Tarryall was once located.  Just beyond that is the Shaft House destination. There was an early attempt to build a dam at that site.  

Bring plenty of water, sunscreen, lunch and your favorite  snacks.  And, of course, rain jacket just in case.  


This is an exploratory hike.

Leader will email all two days before the hike with weather forecast and final instructions. 


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
