    We began our hike a little before 9am early July on a weekday morning. We didn’t see many people— one benefit of going on a weekday morning. The trail is one of the best maintained I’ve seen — although it gets rockier with a few easy stream crossings as you climb to higher elevations. We found a few ripe salmon berries. Lots of wildflowers in full bloom including columbine, fox glove, and lupine to name a few. Most of the hike is through shaded Douglas fir forest until you break above tree line just as you reach the alpine lower Granite lake — a beautiful emerald green gem. It was a beautiful day to take in this beautiful serene setting. One of my new favorite hikes!

    The trail was in great shape. No bugs and the fall colors are starting to pop out. Several small stream crossing and a few dry ones - but nothing that requires getting your feet wet. Right as you get to the shore of Upper Granite Lake things get a little muddy, but completely manageable.
