Overall a good hike. The trail is often crowded on the weekends between the trailhead and the lower falls. After the lower falls, the trail becomes significantly steeper and is only switchbacks until you get to the lake. There is a trail the goes around the lake and backcountry camping.

Beautiful hike up to an amazing waterfalls and then onto a gorgeous alpine lake. There are 3 waterfalls. This is definitely a one place to go.

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.
