“No better way to see wild white mountain goats”
Review of Goat Lick

Goat Lick
Reviewed 22 May 2013

We took the Icefield Parkways (Lake Louis to Jasper) years ago and close to the destination we had our closest encounter of mountain goats. They were three or more white mountain goats scattered on the cliff right beside the highway. Later I found out that it is one of the many attractions in the Parkway called Goat Lick. The mountain goats are licking for mineral which is rich in calcium and sulphate. It was quite fun to watch this born cliff climber to show off their skill. It is hard to miss unless you are the lone car in the parkway and driving very fast. If you are really lucky to be the only car on the road, watchout after you pass Sunwapta Falls inbound to Jasper. It should be around 17km after Sunwapta Falls parking lot. We have seen wild mountain goats in other parks but never like this close. – four stars -
