The Kootenai Brown Trail opened in October, 2010. A scenic multi-use pathway, it was created as a legacy gift to Canadians in recognition of the 125th anniversary of Canada’s national parks. It was constructed to provide a link for non-motorized travellers from the community of Waterton and the Townsite Campground to visitor facilities in the Waterton Valley. The trail offers unparalleled views of the Waterton Lakes and surrounding mountains and addresses safety concerns by ensuring users are separated from motorized traffic along the Entrance Parkway. It is perfect for families!

Great bike ride path to and from Park gates. Also a starting point for the Red Rock Canyon road that is currently closed to vehicular traffic. Pedestrians and cyclists welcome and creates a unique experience on the road without cars and buses. Saw a bear sow and her cub - at a distance. Cool.

A nice little trail. We took a detour off and tracked down a gravel road and found a nice little swimming hole for the dog!

Fantastic views all the way along the trail. Trail is paved and perfect for walking, biking, strollers, wheelchairs etc. You can take the path from near the park entrance, all the way down into the townsite.
