Parked across the street from the Squaw Valley Fire Station (just down the road from the main Squaw Valley Parking lot).   In the distance, the Squaw Gondola was making an early afternoon ascent.

Would never have noticed the Granite Chief trailhead if were not for the guidebook I was using- its that small hiker sign at the right of the fire station.

The trail headed up between the Fire Station and neighboring condo comples, passed a ropes course, then legged up to a service road leading to this water tower.  Past this point it was single track trail.

Squaw Peak (left) would be visible for much of the ascent.  Granite Chief (right) would soon drop behind the ridge and be hidden until the trail passed in front of it much further along.
