The trail is in Waterton Lakes National Park in southern Alberta. This easy 13.6-mile out-and-back trail provides an opportunity to ride the length of Middle Waterton Lake before ending at Wishbone Campground at mile 6.8. The trail varies between overgrown fire road, grassy paths, and bad washouts, but it is passable all the way. The views are spectacular as the ride crosses some wide, marshy meadows. To the south, Vimy Peak provides a sheer rock barrier. To the west, the imposing slopes of Crandell Mountain stands 7801 feet. as the trail passes the junction to Vimy Ridge and begins traversing the lower slopes of Vimy Peak, the condition deteriorates until it becomes barely passable. Most riders will prefer to turn around at this point, but the trail is passable all the way to Wishbone Campground.
