Granite Creek Trailhead does not offer reservations through Recreation.gov. Please take a look at the area details below for more information about visiting this location. Enjoy your visit!
This is a remote trailhead located in the Granite Creek drainage south of Jackson. The trailhead is a large gravel parking area in thick pine and spruce forest near the creek and the developed Granite Hot Springs, which receives high use in the summer months. A lower trailhead also exists near Granite Falls, a stunning waterfall which has a small natural hot spring. The Granite Cr Road is gravel and in good condition and does not necessarily require four wheel drive, although it is recommended when wet or in the spring and fall. This is the main access to the Granite Cr Trail #4018, a non-motorized trail which enters the Gros Ventre Wilderness and leads visitors through stunning wildflower meadows surrounded by high mountain peaks and eventually up to Turquoise Lake. No facilities are located at the trailhead itself but picnic areas and bathrooms are available at the hot springs. Single kiosk with a map. No cellular service available. Trailhead is large enough for trailer turnaround. Driving time from Jackson is approximately 1 hour.
