Runner Notes

A little steep, but breathtakingly gorgeous.

Description

This spur trail breaks away from Granite Park just below Granite Park Chalet and works its way through the trees to the campsites which have great views themselves. From here, the trees thin and the trail crosses a little stream and passes a park service patrol cabin before beginning to climb to join up with the Highline Trail. From here, head north towards Goat Haunt or south to Logan Pass or east to Many Glacier.
