I have done this trail a few times, mainly to complete the Triple Crown and the Fantastic Four (which Pearls Cafe no longer does). Not on of my personal favorites compared to the other hikes for the Triple Crown but still gorgeous scenery.

Beautiful!! We started from the lake and hiked back into town. I wouldn’t have done it any other way. The last few km weren’t too exciting but overall a wonderful hike. Gorgeous views!

Great hike. More of a gradual incline with a few tougher steep parts. Few parts have shale, the rest is a nice trail! Beautiful views and lakes

Awesome hike, will be doing it again sometime next year, hopefully as part of the triple crown challenge. Amazing views and animal life. We took the shuttle from Tamarack in Waterton and walked back on the trail to the town.

I would rate this trail as moderate to difficult. Avid hikers will find this hike easy but for those who don't do too much endurance hiking you may find your legs a bit noodle-like by the end of the day!
