Granite Lake is popular with fishermen. It is a clear, high mountain lake that is very accessible. There are several paths leading from the parking area. The trails usually lead to the main trail or fade out causing you to retrace your steps. Please note the way you travel to avoid confusion on your return trip. The trail continues from Granite Lake into open country with unique rock formations and wide vistas, but no other specific destination.
* Always carry drinking water.
* Hike in single file to keep trails narrow and wild.
* Prevent erosion, follow the trail and do NOT cut switch backs.
* Keep trails clean, pack out ALL paper and trash.
* Protect plants and wildlife.
LEAVE NO TRACE!
