Start at the St Mary Falls entrance and hike down man made trail for about 1.8 miles to Virginia Falls. When you get to the bridge cross and count about 50 steps or 142 feet towards to the toilet. Break off to the right and keep going towards an easterly direction and you will see the game trail. Follow the trail and it will bend to a southery direction.

About 0.7 miles of bushwhack. The trail will fade away towards the end. You will be near the gully. You have about 0.7 miles of climb up the Talus Slope to the cliff. Goat Trail You will descend about 453 feet following this trail to where you walk up towards a saddle. Position to where you start ascending for the saddle is 48.63609 -113.59976 Reference and Notes: A Climber’s Guide to Glacier National Park, Gordon Edwards Long day with a lot of elevation gain.
