Discover Western Montana’s Mountain Goats

Chances are, if you're traveling through Glacier National Park, you'll most likely see Mountain Goats scaling high, sheer cliffs. You may also encounter them on park trails. Please do not feed the goats. A nanny (female Mountain Goat) with a kid (baby Mountain Goat) may become protective of her young. Known as a surefooted animal, Mountain Goats have incredible climbing abilities. Powerful and nimble, they can jump approximately 12 feet in one single movement. Their incredible white coats and beards protect them from Montana's cold temperatures and swift mountain winds.
