Gray's Peak Trailhead is located just across from the Grout Bay Picnic Ground. The trailhead is in the center of a bald eagle wintering habitat area and is closed to all public use from November 1 to April 1.
From the trailhead the access to Gray's Peak Trail climbs to the west for 0.5-mile until it merges with Forest Road 2N04X . Turning north (right), 2N04X joins FR 2N70 after 0.25-mile. Go straight (do not turn left) and continue to the beginning of the Gray's Peak Trail, 200 yards on your left. From there it is 2.75-miles to the top of Gray's Peak. The trail fades as you get a quarter mile from the summit, 7,920 feet, and becomes increasingly more difficult as you climb up through buckthorn and over and around boulders.
Hanna Flat Trail and Campground lie ahead.
