Waterton Overlook – 2mi / 3.2km
This short, steep hike makes you work for its views. Just past the Goat Haunt Ranger Station, this trail begins climbing in earnest and doesn’t let up until it reaches its terminus. Views up the Waterton River drainage open up close to the top with a nice look at Waterton Lake at the end. This trail crosses the border at Goat Haunt.**
