Granite Park Chalet - Glacier National Park, Montana

Granite Park Chalet - Glacier National Park

Granite Park Chalet is located in the heart of Glacier National Park in the U.S. state of Montana. The chalet was built in 1914 by the Great Northern Railway and is a National Historic Landmark contributing property, being one of five structures in the Great Northern Railway Buildings district. From Logan Pass along the Going-to-the-Sun Road, the chalet is a moderate 7.6 miles  hike along the famed Crown of the Continent Highline Trail, usually referred to simply as the Highline Trail. Much of the trail passes through the scenic Garden Wall section of the park, immediately west and parallel to the Continental Divide. The chalet is also accessible via the Loop Trail (4.0 miles, 2,200 feet elevation gain) and the Swiftcurrent Trail (7.5 miles, 2,300 feet elevation gain). The trails are for hikers and horseback riders only; no vehicle access is provided.



What to Expect

We have a rustic kitchen for you to prepare your meals!

  • You are expected to prepare your own meals along side other guests while in the kitchen (guest sign up times are available upon check in at the chalet).

  • Twelve burner, double oven stove capacity.

  • No silverware or dishes are provided. Environmentally friendly paper plates and utensils are available for optional purchase.

  • A limited selection of: pans, pots, kitchen utensils, and measuring cups are available for your use.

  • Limited refrigeration may be available on a first come first serve basis.

  • In Glacier National Park's high back country wilderness, we highly recommend non-odorous foods to reduce wildlife attracting aromas.

  • To reduce water use, food garbage, and unnecessary waste, elaborate gourmet meals are not advised.

  • The dining room and kitchen are equipped with propane lights.

We have limited facilities for water.

  • Each guest must provide their own water as there is no water available at the chalet. The nearest source is 1/4 a mile away along a rocky and rugged trail. You may either carry your water in, haul water or purchase water at the chalet.

  • Restrooms are a modern pit toilet in a separate building from the main chalet.

Camping in the Granite Park Area:

For those who wish to camp out, the Granite Park campground is administered by the National Park Service. For information on back country camping permits in Glacier, see Glacier National Park's Back country Camping Guide.


The weather in Glacier is very temperate, but temperamental. The temperature in July and August varies from 29 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit at chalet elevations (6500+feet). The evenings are usually cool and the buildings are not heated, so you'll need warm clothing for evening use. Sudden rain squalls or thunderstorms can occur, so rain gear should always be carried. Comfortable, appropriate footwear and good socks for mountain hiking, are recommended. Sore, blistered feet and cold, wet bodies are the biggest fun killers that can be encountered.
