Description

Generally used as part of the Granite Canyon Tram Route, Granite Canyon's South Fork descends directly to Granite Canyon itself from the Rendezvous Mountain trail. If you're travelling south to north, the orientation of this trail opens up some amazing views of the east/west mountains - most notably Mount Hunt (10,749') and Prospectors Mountain (11,241'), both to the northeast.

As you near Granite Canyon, keep an eye out for the Upper Granite Canyon Patrol Cabin. The singly-story log cabin was built around 1935 on a log sill foundation using 14-inch logs and was put on the National Register of Historic Places on August 19, 1998.

Additionally, the entire Granite Canyon area is teeming with wildflowers during the late Spring/early Summer months, so try to hit it then
