Grand Valley

Grand Valley is a strenuous, 10 mile loop day hike with 2,400 ft in elevation gain. The trail descends through scenic Badger Valley to the Grand Creek junction before going up to Grand Lake and Moose Lake. From there the trail goes up steep switchbacks to a ridge and back to the trailhead.


  • Hike in-and-out via the Grand Pass Trail or the Badger Valley Trail, or make a loop by hiking in one of these and out the other.
  • This is a great conditioning hike.  
  • The trail is rocky in areas (not even) and the gain is on the way back up the trailhead.  
  • Temperatures can vary widely in the valley depending on winds and humidity so extra layers recommended.  
  • Bug repellent and/or a net is also recommended in late summer due to flies and mosquitoes near water.
