Saw a bear within 1.2 km on the bike trail. Constant climbing from Wishbone Trail junction on Vimy Peak Trail. Snow covered trail near basin. Ascent the south Peak with great views Waterton Lakes and prairies.

Awesome hike up, pretty easy until the scramble to the peak. We walked the ridge to the switchbacks you can see across the bowl, great day!

Amazing! We loved it. Pretty easy most of the way but definitely intense climbing up to the peak, awesome view.

Beautiful hike. We hiked along Wishbone trail to reach Vimy peak. Nice, easy trial to start and then a decent vertical ascent to the top. Patches of snow near the top still. We came upon 4 deer. 3 in the meadows, 1 in the brush. Crossing Sofa Creek was pretty cold, but refreshing. Loved this hike!

amazing hike. went in early september and was not prepared for waste deep snow. we got turned around for a second at one point and there was a massive bear. yet the views were mind blowing! and walking back there was a field of 50+ elk. It was an incredible moment. I can't wait to do the hike again this summer so i can see everything without snow!

I did the hike last year and it was a really cool hike. The first half is decently easy up and down hills. The 2nd half is a pretty good vertical hike with some tough terrain. The views the whole hike long are really great and the end is worth it.
