“Rarely used trail traditionally used as the main trail from Many Glacier Hotel to Swiftcurrent Pass.
— Jake Bramante
Closed most of the busy visitor season, usually opening in late September/early October.
This trail historically was used when most visitors took horses from Many Glacier Hotel
up and over Swiftcurrent Pass
to reach the Granite Park Chalet. Since the building of the Swiftcurrent Motor Inn, most visitors start running to Swiftcurrent Pass
from the parking lot of the Swiftcurrent Motor Inn. This trail is closed most of the season to provide bears access to an important food source without human interference.
The trail breaks off from the Ptarmigan Trail - Altyn/Henkel Connector
and travels through a mix of aspen and pine trees where it joins up with the Ptarmigan Trail
