Overview Service & Activities
About The Granite Park Trail (sometimes called the "loop trail") access Granite Park Chalet from the Loop while gaining 2450 feet in 4.2 miles. Before 2003 the Granite Park Trail was heavily wooded, but a lightning ignited wildfire, burned more than 19,000 acres, swept through and opened up vistas of the surrounding mountains. The forest, however, is already in the process of regeneration. Today you'll find extensive undergrowth, including thousands of wildflowers. This exposed trail can get hot during the summer, bring water. There is no free water available at the Chalet (the signs tell you there is No Potable Water). You can buy snacks, sodas, and water at the Chalet during season. The Granite Park Chalet was built in 1914 and 1915 by the Great Northern Railway to provide comfortable backcountry accommodations inside Glacier National Park. The rustic lodge was the last of the chalets built by the railroad, and today is listed as a National Historic Landmark. Granite Park backcountry campground is nearby including 4 individual campsites.
