In the summer (2021) of never-ending forest fires, it seemed fitting to try and find the abandoned firewatch tower on Goat Peak near Beaverdell, BC for a little history lesson.

For drivers with excellent FSR driving skills, it may be possible to drive to the base of Goat Mt. For everyone else, drive as far as comfortable and then hike the rest of the way. This could mean around 5km walking along the forestry service road.

With a 4×4 it is possible to drive up Boyer FSR out of Beaverdell to the base of Goat Lookout. We chickened out 5km short of this point due to some sketchy dugouts on the now deactivated forestry road.
