A 15-mile, or 2-mile loop trail, with access to massive tors in the alpine with vistas of the Alaska Range and Chena River Valley. The Granite Tors are granite towers, pinnacles, and slabs that crown Munson Ridge, the alpine ridge at the head of Rock Creek, southwest of the Chena River. (A tor is a large, isolated outcrop of rock.) Tors formed millions of years ago when molten rock pushed upward and cooled before it reached the earth’s surface. The surrounding earth slowly eroded, exposing the less erodible rock pinnacles. There are scattered tors west of the Plain of Monuments, including the Lizard’s Eye, a tor with a round, eyelike opening near the top.
