Short and simple hike.
<p>This was the last of my 3 Rockland hikes yesterday.</p> <p>Was not sure if I should do it since it was getting a little late, but it was still a good way to end the day.</p> <p>Nothing particularly challenging or special about this trail, the steep part of the ascent was not too long.</p> <p>I would definitely not attempt it if it was wet or icy though!</p> <p>The Goat's Trail was fun, you just need to watch your feet because there are lots of leaves on the floor already.</p> <p>Description was easy to follow and the path was well marked.</p> <p>Thanks for this great site that has helped me find many trails in the Summer of 2013!</p>
