Rufus, my packgoat, after climbing 4000' and covering 9 miles of trail. Ben Lomond Peak is the location.The North American Packgoat Association is an organization started in 1999 that promotes the use of goats as pack animals to assist back country travel. NAPgA is on the front lines protecting your right to use packgoats on public land. This right is in dispute, as many BLM and Forest Service areas are closing or attempting to close access to goats. Your involvement is needed!

LAND ISSUES – One of NAPgA’s most vital functions is keeping abreast of the most recent proposed closures and fighting to prevent this from happening without your input.

NEWSLETTER – Read about the latest land use issues and regulations, meet highlighted members, discover new trails, and learn more about goat packing clubs.
