The 1.1-mile hike to Granite Lake gains a significant amount of elevation along the way, but the effort is well rewarded once you arrive at the forest-rimmed lake. Towered over by the twin summits of Maggies Peaks, Granite Lake is a picturesque spot for swimming in the chilly waters, angling for the resident trout, or for simply relaxing along the lakeshore.
