What's New:

The Highline Trail opens for the season!

Good evening to all of our guests. We want to share the news that the Highline trail is now open as of July 11, 2024, in the evening.

Beware of treacherous snowfields, running water beneath the snow, and always take your time over precipitous areas and snow covered trails.

Wear Yak Trax, use your poles, carry lots of water, and wear your sunscreen. We'll see you in the high country!

Granite Park Chalet in 2024

The backcountry of Glacier National Park is as beautiful as beautiful gets right now. Granite Park Chalet is ready to help you with your adventure.

The Loop Trail is your best access. We still have quite a bit of snow at our elevation, so the Highline Trail remains closed for a little while yet. All the high country trails will have hazardous snow crossings these next couple weeks. Be sure to have sturdy waterproof footwear for your visit. Please be safe out there.

The Granite Park Crew has been on the mountain about a week now getting everything cleaned up and ready for you. Kathie, Christian, Paige, Trey and Wendy are all looking forward to seeing you.

Granite Park Chalet Information:

Granite Park Chalet was built in 1914 and 1915 by the Great Northern Railway to provide comfortable back country accommodations inside Glacier National Park. It was the last of the chalets built by the railroad and one of the only two back country chalets that have survived. Today this rustic lodge is listed as a National Historic Landmark and it continues to provide comfortable lodging to adventurers and visitors in the Glacier National Park wilderness.

Don't Forget:

Camping in the Granite Park Area:

For those who wish to camp out, the Granite Park campground is administered by the National Park Service. For information on back country camping permits in Glacier, see Glacier National Park's Back country Camping Guide.


The weather in Glacier is very temperate, but temperamental. The temperature in July and August varies from 29 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit at chalet elevations (6500+feet). The evenings are usually cool and the buildings are not heated, so you'll need warm clothing for evening use. Sudden rain squalls or thunderstorms can occur, so rain gear should always be carried. Comfortable, appropriate footwear and good socks for mountain hiking, are recommended. Sore, blistered feet and cold, wet bodies are the biggest fun killers that can be encountered.
