In late October I hiked from the  Three Sisters Dam at the Spray Lakes West Campground to the Goat Creek day use parking. http://willski.ca/high-rockies-trail-goat-creek-to-three-sisters-dam/   This time on snoeshoes we started from the Goat Creek and walked in the opposite direction. After about 3 or 4 km a trail comes in from the left and we took this back along the creek to the Goat Creek Day use. From the day use we followed the power line into the trees and came out at the Trans Alta road that leads to the creek where the new bridge for the High Rockies Trail. Simple follow the old road until the turn. On the return we took the trail across the pond to the Goat Creek trail at the Banff Park Boundary. Then returned to the parking.
