  • I consider myself and my husband to be in pretty good shape, so I was surprised at how out-of-breath we were on this hike. It is straight up hill for 0.9 miles and we needed to stop to catch our breat...  more »

  • A must do hike. A great quick uphill for a quick cardio session. Good view down the lake.
  • If there's one hike you have to do while you're at Waterton, it's Bears Hump. The incline is about 90 degrees, but it's pretty short, so you hardly notice it. The view from the top is absolutely spectacular. It's a great introduction to the area or a great spot to go for nostalgia a hundred visits later.
  • May not be a long hike, but it is steep. The view is the best there is of the town of Waterton.
  • Amazing view at the top! Worth the hike up to it!
  • Hard climb but the view...! Recommended!!
