Description

To reach the trailhead take Highway 55 west of town and turn on the Brundage Mountain Road. Take the Goose Lake/Hazard Lake turnoff at the Brundage "Y". Stay on the graveled road going past Goose Lake about a mile. You will see a road to the left. Turn onto that road and drive a short distance to a meadow. You can see a Cattle Association cabin in the meadow. Motorists and hikers are asked to not disturb stock that may be grazing in the area or disturb the cabin residence. The trailhead sign is by a stream. This trail is open to use by two wheeled vehicles. After walking up the trail a short distance you will have to cross the stream. The trail is a 1 mile walk up to the Twin Lakes. The trail climbs steadily but not steeply for an elevation gain of about 400'. The lake is subject to drawdown at the dam so you will want to go early in the summer. The fishing is good and it is a nice place to take a picnic lunch and let the kids scramble around the shores. It is a two mile round trip. Twin Lakes Trail starts at the elevation of 6721' and the Twin Lakes are 7164'. On the way to Twin Lakes there is a junction where the trail continues west to Granite Mountain and Granite Lookout. The trail from the parking area to Granite Mountain is three miles long. It is a steep, rugged, rocky hike with spectacular panoramic views west into the Little Salmon River Basin and east into the Central Idaho Mountains. The ending elevation is 8478' giving you an elevation gain of 1758'. (Trail Difficulty - Easy)
