If you’re looking for an unforgettable hiking experience you have to take the trek up to Crypt Lake in Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada. Waterton National Park is the sister park of Glacier National Park in Montana. In 1932 these two Parks were officially acknowledged as the world’s first International Peace Park. Today, they not only share a common border but also work together toward shared management of protecting the land and animals in the region.
The Crypt Lake hike is not one for those who have an aversion to heights or tight spaces because you will encounter extremely narrow paths, rock scrambles, sheer drop-offs, and ladders & cables to maneuver. These obstacles sound daunting but they make this one of the most popular hikes on the continent. The beautiful Crypt Lake is a great payoff at the end, then you make your way back down the course. Definitely a hike where most of the thrill is simply getting there. Get out and #FindYourPark.
