Bear's Hump Hike
Crandell Lake Trail, Waterton, AB T0K 2M0, Canada
Climb the Bear's Hump for Cross-Border ViewsBear's Hump is one of Waterton National Park's best hikes.
It's extremely short, measuring only 2.8 km, but it involves plenty of climbing as the trail winds uphill from the Visitor Information Office towards the rocky bluffs that hang high above the townsite.
The hike itself is little more than a forested staircase that will test the lungs of even the most seasoned hiker; however, the destination is absolutely stunning. From Bear's Hump, the views extend across the Waterton Lakes and deep into the USA's Glacier National Park.
Sunset is an absultely wonderful time to check out this stunning view, but don't forget to take a flashlight for the steep hike back down.
