DIRECTIONS: From Vancouver: Drive for about 145Km along Hwy #1. Take exit #168. Turn right after 200m to Silver Skagit Road. After driving for 4Km, the road turns to gravel road. Ignore the right turn to Silver Lake at 6.1Km. Just before 16.1Km, is the left turn to Eaton Lake. Drive for another 100m on a rough road. There are few parking spots available. You can also park on Silver Skagit Road just at the turn.create
SUMMARY: The trail head starts at altitude 420m. The first 80m of elevation is on a wide road. It turns then to a trail which climbs fairly steeply on the left side of Eaton Creek. The first bridge crosses the creek is at altitude 580m. The trail then goes away from the creek to be on gentler slopes. It comes back again to the creek at altitude 800m where the trail climbs fairly steeply on a spur which is surrounded between two creeks: Eaton Creek on the left and a smaller creek on the right. At altitude 1200m, the slope becomes gentle. The trail crosses again Eaton Creek at altitude 1290m. There was a bridge but it is broken and a heap of dead wood currently serves as a way to cross the creek. At the end of the former bridge is the fork to Mount Grant. There is no sign. From this point the route to the mountain goes slightly left and then up and to the right following the lesser gradient. The route goes steadily up except for a small ravine near the beginning that you have to cross. Mount Grant trail is not defined and the first part of it is a bush whacking. At first, only few yellow and pink ribbons might be seen along the route, but after a while ribbons become abundant.create
