"A good choice for early-season day hike. This is a great choice for an early-season hike. Snow usually leaves the area in May, and if you hike around Garnet Hill early in the year, you can see an abundance of early-season wildflowers like balsamroot and bitterroot. Later, lupine lines the trail, and you might find a few patches of unpicked wild raspberries. The horse concession at Roosevelt Lodge heavily uses short sections at the beginning and end of this route, but most of it is a terrific hiking trail. Every summer day you can see pack trains of tourists and stagecoaches traveling into a permanent camp for a barbecue." Read more
