Crypt Lake TrailAdd to Trip Planner
Considered one of the top 10 hikes in Canada, this 8.5 km (5.3 mile) day hike begins with a short boat ride from the Waterton Village marina to Crypt Landing. From Crypt Landing you'll pass the optional detour to Hell Roaring Falls, continue on your way through a boulder filled landscape and a crawl through a 4-ft wide tunnel that's been blasted out of the cliff wall. Once on the other side, you'll navigate a cliff wall while holding onto a steel safety cable to reach your destination of Crypt Lake.
The descent ends back at Crypt Landing where you'll be ferried back to Waterton Village after 6-7 hours of hiking through one of the most scenic areas in the world. Click Here to read an interesting article on the hike.
