We are a group of people who love to hike and pack with our goats, so we started a club in August 2008. We love to meet new packers and old time packers! We are located in Shasta County, Ca. and we have members from all over.
Our membership varies from people who are seasoned packers and have been packing for years, people who are just learning and people who don't have goats yet, but want to learn. All are welcome
Our goats range from new babies learning the ropes to seasoned packers.
We have horned goats, dis-budded goats, wethers and dairy does.
We have members that hunt, camp, and members who just like to get out for a few hours or all day to just enjoy the trails, and the companionship of our goats.
Our meetings are held the second Saturday of each month at the Upper Crust Pizza on 2727 Churn Creek Road, Redding. Meeting time is 11:30 am. If you wish to order something to eat, then you might want to show up at 11:00.
We try to set up at least one group hike a month. There is always someone in the club going on some kind of a hike and they put out invites to all interested.
For fun, we try to do local parades, trail clean up days and other local activities.
Some of our goals; First and foremost, to have fun!
On Oct. 30th 2011, a small group of us did a Trail Clean up on BLM land, on the Flanangan Trail off of Lake Blvd. and with 5 goats and 7 people, and a wheel barrow, we hauled out 720 pounds of garbage!
