Whitegoat Lakes & Whitegoat Falls

A hiking trail leads from the lodge across Hwy 11 and around the far side of Whitegoat Lakes, re-emerging at McKenzie’s trail riding stables and the DTR motel / campground. En-route, a side trail takes you to Cline Creek (Whitegoat Creek) which has to be crossed to continue upstream to the view point overlooking Whitegoat Falls, hidden away in the forest where small springs and creeks attract wildlife throughout the year. Whitegoat Lakes are a good place to observe migrating waterfowl in spring.

Whitegoat Lakes and Whitegoat Creek are named after the mountain goats which can sometimes be seen on the slopes of Mt. Stelfox. Lake and fenlands drain into Abraham Lake over Little Indian Falls next to Aurum Lodge and are classified as an environmentally significant area with a variety of rare plant species including grasses, pinks and orchids.
