EXPLORE WITH GOATREKS LLC
Greatest Of All Treks!
We are closed for the 2023 season. Contact Goatreksutah@gmail.com with any questions
GOATreks LLC is for those who want to see a side of Southeast Utah and the Bears Ears area that many people miss, and connect with nature in a new way. On a hike or experience with GOATreks, you will visit beautiful, off the beaten path locations while accompanied by a knowledgeable guide and friendly charismatic goats.
Goats are wonderful hiking companions. They enjoy hiking along side their human friends and are gentle on the environment. Pack goats have been trained to carry day packs with your food and water, allowing you to hike with minimal weight on your back!
Join us for an unforgettable adventure. We offer a number of different hikes ranging in length and difficulty, or you can sign up for a shorter experience where you can meet the goats and photograph them in a beautiful location without the effort of hiking. For the safety of kids and goats, goat hikes are for humans age 15 and up. If you have younger kids or pets, we are happy to take you on a guided hike without goats.
Contact us today and we can recommend a trip tailored to your needs.

Kathleen is a wonderful host! She is very knowledgeable about the area! We had the best time hiking with her and her darling goats! The hike was beautiful and they were wonderful company!
Hiking in such a beautiful place was an amazing experience that was made even more special by the presence of the goats Fenrir and Hamish. I look forward to more hikes with GOATreks!
This was the best experience we had during our 10 days in Utah. Kathleen is absolutely amazing and so knowledgeable. The experience with the goats was fantastic and made the hike easier. Definitely recommended!
