Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A day hike from Crypt Landing to Crypt Lake, 5.3 miles (8.5 km) one-way. This popular trail can be reached by taking the water taxi that runs from Waterton townsite to Goat Haunt. As backcountry campgrounds on the eastern shore of Waterton Lake have been closed, the only option to hike this trail is via a day hike by taking the morning boat to Crypt Landing and catching the afternoon boat back to Waterton.

However, this itinerary requires a pace that adheres to a timetable. The trail can also be accessed via a long journey down the Wishbone Trail, which follows the eastern shore of Upper Waterton Lake."
