From it's headwaters in Kianuko Provincial Park, the Goat River rises in the central Purcell Mountains just west of Mallaindane Pass and flows largely south until meeting Kitchener Creek. From this confluence, it bends southwest towards the Creston Valley where it eventually meets the larger Kootenay River.
In Summer, the Goat River is a popular local's spot for swimming, fishing, kayaking, and "floating the goat". Though no offical parks or trails along the river exist at present, the Goat River Bridge area on Highway 21 will allow visitors to reach the river and enjoy.
Note that parking is limited to the shoulders of the highway. Please use caution when exiting a vehicle or crossing the highway.
