Hike the Crypt Lake Trail
Waterton Lakes National Park, Canada
Located adjacent to Montana’s Glacier National Park, this trail in the Canadian Rockies is part of a UNESCO World Heritage site. The trailhead starts after a 15-minute boat ride across Waterton Lake and then extends to tough 10.8 mile round trip hike, climb, and scramble. The benefits are abundant, though, as the trail passes four waterfalls, an adrenaline-inducing ridge walk, sedimentary rock walls and a picturesque alpine lake. There is a cable handrail to help hikers in the more dodgy sections, but otherwise completing the trail is not much of a problem.
