Grandgent Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This hard-to-reach and strenuous trail is primarily used as a connector for loops up and down the steep west face of Sargent Mountain. It also takes you over the less-traveled Gilmore Peak with views from its 1,036-foot summit. Highlights: Difficult trail up west face of Sargent via Gilmore Peak."
