Where the Mountains Meet the Prairie Rugged, windswept mountains rise abruptly out of gentle prairie grassland in spectacular Waterton Lakes National Park. Here, several different ecological regions meet and interact in a landscape shaped by wind, fire, flooding, and abundant plants and wildlife. The park helps protect the unique and unusually diverse physical, biological and cultural resources found in the Crown of the Continent: one of the narrowest places in the Rocky Mountains.

Very easy view spot, gorgeous colours and information stands explaining the history of the rocks. Lots of people hang out here, tough to get a picture without someone in it! Otherwise great spot!

Loved this hike! Didn't know there was a back country camping spot with an outhouse at the top! Beautiful views, good workout! Waterton is always a treat! About 4hr return moderate hike.

Short and sweet! Great view of waterton village! Little chipmunks to great you at the top, very windy too. Only moderate because of the steep incline. Take breaks cause the view is worth it!

This is a short easy walk. There were a bunch of people hanging out down in the canyon, which doesn't make for great photos. Coming from Utah, it was pretty underwhelming. However, done in conjunction with Blakiston Falls (same parking lot), I would call it a 5 star hike.

Rarely do you get such incredible waterfall views for so short and easy a hike. Maybe it was because we were early in the season, but we only saw one other couple, so not busy. Definitely worth the time.

Hiked 1st week of June, 2017, excellent trail condition entirely clear of snow.

Beautiful views of Waterton Lake.

Busy little trail with gorgeous views at the falls. The platforms at the falls are not dog-friendly as the metal is grooved and sharp.

Always a great little hike with spectacular views!

I did this hike last August- my first in Waterton. It's pretty much all uphill going in and the sun was unrelenting! But the views were absolutely incredible. A very enjoyable day hike :)

Did this one on June 11th, short but steep! The view at the top is so worth it. It's very popular and thus a busy hike though. And careful if you have knee issues.

The incline in the trail was unexpected but not too bad. Was a beautiful trail!
