Getting There

 Drive the Mountain Loop Highway to milepost 7 at the top of the hill and look for two large telephone poles set close together on the left. These mark the turn onto FS Road 41. Turn onto it, and stay on the main road uphill. Three roads leave 92 at this point, but two are private. FS 41 is the eastmost of the three. The sign for FS 41 is about 100 feet down the road.

NOTE: At mile 8, FR 41 is officially closed to all motorized traffic due to road and bridge damage. Hike or bike to trailhead allowed. Stay left as you pass several roads. Turn right onto FS 4160. At about 17.5 miles there will be a trailhead signed for Goat Flats.
