The Grant Ridge Loop

The Grant Ridge Loop Professional Review and Guide

"The Grant Ridge Loop provides a long day trip to the high country at the foot of Great Northern Mountain. Along with excellent views of the glacier-clad crest of the Flathead Range, this trail offers an outstanding opportunity to view such wildlife as golden eagles and mountain goats.

Grizzly bears are abundant along this route, especially when the berries ripen in late August. There is no water along the trail, so hikers should bring along their own supply. Climbers can use the trail as an approach route to Great Northern Mountain, although the southwestern approach is much shorter and thus more popular."
