Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This trail climbs the mountain slopes to visit a spectacular overlook of Waterton Lake. The hike begins with a steady climb through sparse woodlands of aspen and Douglas fir. Looking uphill, the twisted strata of Mount Crandall can be viewed through the trees. This mountain was originally known as Bear Medicine Mountain by the Pikuni (Blackfoot) tribe, after the bear’s hump appearance of the spur that the trail ascends. After reaching the first bench, the climb levels off a bit, then steepens to a veritable staircase up the mountainside. The climb increases further after the second rest bench, and aerial views of the Prince of Wales Hotel with its solitary spire can be seen to the south."
