You feel like you are on top of the world. Be prepared for sore knees when going back down.

Had been to Waterton a half dozen times or so and had never heard of this trail, but while talking to another visitor he seemed to have a similar appetite for hikes and recommended this one highly. Without knowing what to expect we were completely blown away. There's so much to see the entire trek and ending at the waterfall back in town was the icing on the cake.

This was our 2nd hike in the Triple Crown Challenge. The day started in the Town of Waterton, were we took a bus to Cameron Lake, then hiked the trail, all the way back to town. This was another one of my favotite hikes in Waterton Lakes National Park. As we gained elevation until we reached Carthew ridge, then it was downhill from there on, awesome scenery.
