Just finshed hiking the Goat Camp and the old part that was the Mesquite trail is about 90% new trail. The old ankle breaker portion of the the trail has been replaised. The trail starting from the Willow Canyon trail (going east) is 100% better than it was. The trail now stays in Mesquite Canyon most of the way down, then crosses over at a saddle to the old draw that it use to go down through. At this point the County has used switch backs instead of going down the bottom of the draw that was full of loose rocks. This is probbly why the name change.

WARNING! Hiking and outdoor related sports can be dangerous. Be responsible and prepare for the trip. Study the area you are entering and plan accordingly. Dress for the current and unexpected weather changes. Take plenty of water. Never go alone. Make an itinerary with your plan(s), route(s), destination(s) and expected return time. Give your itinerary to trusted family and/or friends.
