Goat Hike & Explore

Goat Hike & Explore runs From October to May. Our 2022/2023 Season will begin in October. Hikes will open for registration in early September. Online registration opens 1-2 weeks ahead of a hike being scheduled.

Join us for a stroll in the woods, with goats on leads and some roaming free as we hike through the farm’s woods. These events will include a meet & greet other animals if they are on the farm such as with the goats, llama, sheep, dogs, etc. Some events will have a theme. We will provide goat treats to each participant and teach you more about goats and life on the farm. The walk will be about an hour and a little over a mile round-trip on gravel and hilly terrain and we’ll be going at “goat” speed. If conditions are too muddy/wet/icy for the goats we will take an alternate route down a side street. Not advised for kids under 4 yrs old, since the adult goats we use on these hikes have horns and our goats will jump up on you for treats. No large bags, strollers, baby carriers, or outside animals allowed. All attendees must be able to walk at least a mile, unassisted. Group size is ~15 people.

Location: Goats To Go at Great Rock Farm, 201 Pond St Georgetown, MA
