GRANITE FALLS MOUNTAIN LOOP AREA
Miles: 8 roundtrip
Elevation: 4,000 feet gained
Starting out fairly easy it soon climbs seemingly endless switchbacks through dense forest, finally breaking into the open at a seasonal creek. With never a level spot, continue climbing past an enormous blueberry field and onto many overlooks. First you look down on Perry Creek Canyon and then over to see the Mountain Loop Highway below Big Four Mountain. The final push to the top is through meadows and the steps are large. When you crest the rocks at the summit, you see Glacier Peak and all of the surrounding mountains. Civilization is nowhere to be seen, only other hikers and the wilderness.
