“A well-maintained, forested trail along Upper Waterton Lake.”— Joan Pendleton
After about 4.2 miles, Lakeshore Trail reaches the USA/Canadian border. From here, the trail continues through the forest, along Upper Waterton Lake for about another 4.6 miles into the States. The trail ends at Goat Haunt. Goat Haunt has a boat dock, and there is a boat service that runs between Waterton Townsite and Goat Haunt for those that prefer to hike one-way on this trail. It is an 8.8-mile run from Waterton Townsite to Goat Haunt.
Due to the international border, with different Land Managers that have their own trail rules, overnight camping systems, criteria for trail closures, and so forth, this trail mapping is for the Canadian side only.
This is a segment of the GDT (Great Divide Trail).
