vicino a Swiftcurrent, Montana (United States)
The trailhead is located at the far end of The Swiftcurrent Motor Lodge parking lot. The hike begins with a 3.5 mile meandering hike across the Swiftcurrent Valley floor to the shores of Bullhead Lake and the towering Swiftcurrent Valley headwall. There the trail begins the nearly 3 mile ascent up to the continental divide at Swiftcurrent Pass, gaining 3500 feet as it swicthbacks steeply up the enormous and seemingly vertical headwall. The low saddle at the divide gives way to spectacular views of Heavens Peak and the trail begins it's descent into Bear Valley and Granite Park. Following the junction with The Highline Trail is the approach to The Granite Park Chalet. The Granite Park Backcountry Campsite is located nearly one trail mile beyond the historical Granite Park Chalet and is reached via an easily identifiable trail route. .
