Basically, the cabbage and wolf have to be together at all time.
1) take she-goat across
2) go back and get cabbage
3) put cabbage on other side and bring back the goat.
4) leave goat on the first side of the river
5) bring the wolf to the cabbage on other side
6) go back and get the darn goat
.. and done!

6 trips total.. eww

Yes, this is an ancient puzzle, but it is so fun...

First you take the goat across, then either the wolf or the cabbage, then you bring the goat back. Then you take the cabbage or wolf (whichever you didn't take the first time), and at last you go back and take the goat with you a third time...


So you need to cross the river 7 times, 2 times of which with an empty boat, and the she-goat is transported 3 times...


So it may not be practical, but that's not what puzzles are about, right?
