Default Granite Mountain Lookout Washington

This is a popular day trip for Seattle folks. It's an 8 mile round trip with 4000ft elevation gain. The south slope is usually loaded with huckleberries but the last two years have been poor years for them.

Here are some views into the Alpine Lakes Wilderness area.

Looks like a fun hike... great to see some new Washington State trip reports. I've only ever been to Little Si off of the I-90 (and Tiger Mountain, if that counts!)

Unfortunately most of the fire lookouts up here have been destroyed or removed - it's nice to see that many of the ones in Washington have been preserved.
