Located approximately two miles southeast of the Walter Ranger Station are natural minerals in the ledges going down into the River that attract Mountain Goats and other animals. The goats are famous to the area and were the mascot of the Great Northern Railroad which forged the first rail tracks through in the late 1800’s. **Beware – You will see cars pulled over by bridge – It is NOT allowed!!! Remember Highway 2 is a major East/West Highway. There is a parking lot and observation point for the Goat Lick; if you walk up to the bridge be VERY careful of traffic.
