“Climb from the Granite Basin Recreation Area up to Blair Pass and into the heart of Granite Mountain Wilderness.”— Holly Snow Canada
Water available at parking area. Surface water should be treated.
$5 for day use parking (Wednesdays are free).
Visitors are asked to be alert and stay on existing trails when recreating on Granite Mountain as the area recovers from the Doce Fire of 2013. Soil erosion has occurred on portions of the trails, thus exposing more rock, and cross-country travel increases the possibility of encountering rolling rocks, stump and root holes, falling trees, and loose soils from rains.
