“An out and back run to the top of 8,478' Granite Mountain.”— Keith Lannom
The lower third of this trail is obvious, but once you reach open rock area you have to look around for the trail. There might be a few cairns to help guide you, but just keep heading up. After the rock field, the trail becomes obvious again and the summit is not too far. After checking out the views, head back down the trail.
There is very little shade on this trail. Avoid hot days. And you probably don't want to drink the water down in the area where the cows hang out.
Granite Mountain Trail #165 continues west to the Browns Creek and Bascom Canyon area.
