Description

This short, steep trail takes you up the base of the mountains to the east of the Goat Haunt area behind the ranger station.

The forest is pleasant with intermittent views up the Waterton River drainage and out to the surrounding mountains. The lovely overlook at the end of the trail is the site of an old lookout with a nice look at Waterton Lake.
