Up the Mountain Loop Highway:
Granite Falls Fish Ladder
On scenic Mountain Loop Highway, one mile outside of Granite Falls. A huge year-round fish ladder with walk-over grating is adjacent to the Granite Falls which are the city’s namesake.
Big Four Mountain and Ice Cave
Approximately 25 miles outside of Granite Falls on the beautiful Mountain Loop Highway. Sharp peaks reminiscent of the Grand Tetons and huge caverns formed by the melting glacier. One mile easy hike to the caves.
Monte Cristo Ghost Town
At the top of Barlow Pass on the Mountain Loop Highway, four miles off of the main highway, sits the original townsite of the old gold mining town Monte Cristo. Granite Falls experienced its main growth because of the Monte Cristo mines and the railroad that was built through Granite Falls to reach the mines. There are still numerous mine entrances evident throughout the Monte Cristo and Silverton areas.
Along the Mountain Loop Highway, there are numerous campgrounds, hiking trails both short and easy or long and steep. There are scores of lakes to hike to where the fishing is excellent. In the wintertime there is cross country skiing and sledding available. There are also lakes on the south side of town for water activities such as skiing and tubing, fishing and boating.
