Everyone should enjoy this view and the surrounding scenery. You must take and ATV or Jeep to reach the lake. The path is narrow at times, but beautiful.

We took a Geo Tracker up to Goose Lake in early July. Along the way you will find great view and several old mine sites. We got out with out 5 and 6 year old and explored the mining camps and the river. The kids watched as a local panned for gold. The lake view is stunning and worth the bumpy ride to the top. This is not an easy drive and takes a couple of hours at least. Single lane dirt road most of the way. If you like, hike Gold Hill and look at the view of the lake and surrounding area. Beautiful, take a camera!

We took my 2000 Tracker up and went pretty slow as the road is very, very rocky in some places, but we got there with no major issues. Diesel pickup in front of us that wouldn't get over and let us pass as they were having lots of problems was the only frustration. Absolutely gorgeous view of Goose Lake. Bighorns were all around and not afraid of us at all. The lambs were baaing in the distance. One came right up to the car as if looking for something to eat. Make sure you take your camera.

Spent a morning riding to Goose Lake. The lake is absolutely gorgeous!! Next time we will stay longer and go exploring in the area. Several old cabins on trail that are neat to look at.

Took a jeep ride up to Goose lake.The trail is really bumpy and rocky but it's jeep trail so what do you expect.Took it nice and easy on the way up.Saw several old gold mining sites and ruins of old cabins on the way up.Once we arrived at the lake I was blown away by it's beauty.There was still a patch of snow on the peaks and the water was crystal clear.The little squirrels will eat right out of your hand and are fun to watch.The rough ride is well worth it when you see this wonderful place.
