Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A half- day hike or short backpack from Goat Haunt Ranger Station to Kootenai Lakes, 2.8 miles (4.5 km) one-way; or a backpack from Goat Haunt to Fifty Mountain Campground, 10.5 miles (17 km) one-way.

The Waterton Valley Trail links Goat Haunt Ranger Station, at the head of Upper Waterton Lake, to the high alpine country of the Highline Trail. It offers an easy stroll through the forest on the valley floor to the Stoney Indian Pass junction, then begins a steep, seemingly endless climb across an open, brushy slope to the Fifty Mountain Campground. Kootenai Lakes provide a popular day- hike destination for anglers and wildlife viewers from Goat Haunt."
