Description

The Grizzly Lake Trail is one of the most popular routes leading into the Tombstone Range. The head of the valley extends past Grizzly Lake to Mt. Monolith. The route follows the well marked Grizzly Ridge Trail, traversing rocky talus slopes and beautiful alpine meadows, with ever improving views as you get closer to the lake and its entourage of rocky peaks.

The trail climbs gradually at the start, and then steeply ascends onto the top of the ridge. As you get closer to the lake, the trail descends through a meadow filled with curious marmots, and finishes along the talus basin.

Grizzly Lake is an overnight destination and this trail can be used for a single day, or as part of a multi-day trip including Divide and Talus Lake. There are also numerous side trips you can do from the lake, including Grizzly Pass and Mount Monolith / Twin Lakes viewpoint.
