Short steep hike from Waterton Lakes Visitor Center to rocky outcroppings and great views of the Prince Wales Hotel, Waterton Lakes and surrounding lakes and mountain range. This trail in Waterton Lakes National Park is a very convenient and popular short hike starting behind the Visitor's Center. Fairly steep, the trail switchbacks up Mount Crandell to a prominent outcropping resembling a grizzly bear's hump, getting its name from the Blackfoot tribe. The views of the Prince of Wales hotel, the townsite and down the length of the surrounding lakes in both directions are spectacular. It's a great family hike with great rewards for a little bit of effort.

Its a short but hard hike in the holy-cow-I-can't-breath sense (not technical). View was worth it and we saw people of all shapes, sizes and fitness levels do it. Just take your time and enjoy the reward at the top.

At 100m of elevation for each km it's quite a woorkout for the kids. Nice panoramic view of Waterton from the top though.
