Long Description:
From the AllTrips web page:

The Granite Canyon trail follows Granite Creek all the way up Granite Canyon to the beautiful alpine Marion Lake, where many hikers choose to pitch a tent and enjoy a night in the mountains before either returning to their car on continuing along the Teton Crest Trail. Many visitors also enjoy riding the famous Jackson Tram to the top of Rendezvous Mountain before making the alpine trek to Marion Lake or descending down to Granite Canyon.

No matter how you decide to approach Granite Canyon, expect to find a long, moderate to strenuous hike that probably isn’t the best for children or novice hikers planning on going for a short day hike. But if you like to move fast or want to take your time and spend a night at Marion Lake, Granite Canyon is a beautiful option with serene campsites.

While most trips up Granite Canyon are out-and-backs, loops to the top of Rendezvous or through Open Canyon can also be done. If you’d like to spend a few days backpacking, the Teton Crest Trail intersects with the Granite Canyon Trail near Marion Lake.
