After meandering through the Many Glacier Valley, this 7.6-mile trail climbs up to the Continental Divide and passes waterfall vistas, Redrock Lake and Bullhead Lake. The switchbacks are numerous and the path – precariously cut into the side of the mountain – can be vertiginous. At the Divide, go for the real glory, ascending another 1.2 miles to Swiftcurrent Lookout.

Returning to the pass, either retrace your steps, or head 0.9 miles down to the Granite Park Chalet to link up with other routes. The trail departs from the west side of the Swiftcurrent Motor Inn parking lot.
