Love this hike. We always come from Logan Pass and then down to the Loop or over Swift Current Pass to the other side. The route from the Loop has more vertical gain in a shorter distance.

Breathtaking views, fresh mountain air & lots of wild life to see. Who wouldn't want to add Granite Park Trail to their itinerary? We'll be heading back there again this September to take a grand daughter who has never been there.

We parked very early and parked at the Loop. We then shuttled up to Logan Pass. If you choose to do this, go early. Parking fills, the shuttles fill, but it is all easier if you go early. The hike begins by walking on a cliff, then crosses a steep hillside that is covered in flowers. If you look up... More

This hike is simply breath-taking! There are multiple routes to Granite Park Chalet but we took the shortest due to the fact that we planned to continue on to Swiftcurrent Mt Lookout and then Grinnell Glacier Overlook (total of approximately 15 miles). If you have one long day for hiking and want to get the most out of your time... More

Again...another WOW hike and not so difficult but a little over 12 miles. It is only easier if you start at Logan Pass @ the Highline Trail. Amazing vistas, long horned sheep, marmot, etc. Also nearing the granite chalet there is a 0.6 heaving incline side trail to the Grinnell Glacier Overlook...it was far worth the effort and climb to...

This 8-mile round trip trail gains about 2,200 feet of altitude. It starts out in patchy forest, carving out two huge switchbacks into the hillside before cresting out at the top of a flat hill. The last half a mile to the chalet is a little steeper, but well worth the effort. It took us about 2 hours to hike... More

We did this section as a loop from Many Glacier Hotel to Granite Chalet (via Swiftcurrent Pass) and then out to Logan pass. The trail is modest in elevation gain/loss. Extremely scenic with good chances for wildlife. We saw a marmot, grizzly, amd sheep on our hike. Views are excellent down the valley towards lake MacDonald. Try to get a... More

We hiked up from the loop parking area - it's about 4 miles but 2200 feet elevation gain - we are in our 50's so it was a bit of a challenge - but not really too bad. Probably a better way would be to take the highline trail from Logan pass , stay the night at the chalet, and... More
