“Stunning and a little bit more adventaruous”
Review of Crypt Lake Trail

A great hike for all ages and especially with children (age 6 and up) just a little bit more exciting than the average hike, with a boat ride start a very small rock climbing finish and the rewards of a hanging lake.

If you are half thinking of doing this hike- then do it
Walking across the snow was the worse bit - in my opinion, the ladder, tunnel and cave were ok

It took us 3.5 hrs to get to top. We didn’t have time to go off the path to see the first falls. Glad we took the advice of not walking to see the falls first.

My only disappointment was the view of Crypt Lake. All the photos of the lake you see are taken from another mountain so what you really see is not a view down to the lake.

It is still a great hike and one of the very few that is open in Waterton at the moment

A quick boat ride to the trail head is well worth your time! Crypt lake is gorgeous! Make sure you pack a lunch if staying the day or spend the night camping - you won't regret it!

Not for the faint of heart, or afraid of heights, but even though I'm both, I'd do it again. I did this for my 60th birthday and the views were incredible.
