Where is the Goat River?

The Goat River is a tributary of the upper Fraser River in east-central British Columbia, Canada. It is located about 35 km northwest of McBride, BC, and 180 km souteast of Prince George, BC, in the Robson Valley section of the Rocky Mountain Trench.

The headwaters of the Goat River form a low elevation pass through the Cariboo Mountains that connect the forested plateau abutting Bowron Lake Provincial Park and the forested lowlands in the Robson Valley. As one of only a few such low elevation passes through the Cariboo Mountains, it forms an important corridor for wildlife movement.
