The Tamarack Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"An extended backpack accessed via the Rowe Lakes Trail. Rowe Meadows to Twin Lakes, 12.6 miles (20.3 km) one-way plus 3.2 miles (5.1 km) to reach the trailhead.

The Tamarack Trail provides access to the most remote corner of Waterton Lakes National Park—the high valleys that lie below the Continental Divide. It is possible to make a long day hike via the Tamarack and Blakiston Creek Trails, but this option is only for the hard- core hiker. The trail is named for the tamarack, or alpine larch, that grows on the north- facing slopes of the high passes traversed by the trail. This unusual conifer turns bright yellow before losing all of its needles in autumn, providing an amazing display of colors."
