"This weekend after hiking up to Goat Ridge from the Skyline ridge trail near Copilot we ran into a problem completing out route which was to be loop finishing at Murrin Park or back at the gondola (Seatosky) depending on the time. We hiked down the Goat ridge trail toward Petgill Lake and about 500 ft above the lake the trail vanished into new logging slash. No trail, gone, the end.Yesterday we hiked to Petgill Lake and then continued up the Goat Ridge trail to approximately 1,100 m elevation (the lake is at about 740 m) before we ran out of time. Although there's been a lot of logging activity BELOW Petgill Lake over the past few years, I saw no activity above the lake up to 1,100 m.
We ending up following logging roads that eventually took us to Britannia Beach. Just wanted to give people a "heads up" and wondered if others are aware that this trail has been destroyed."
