Crypt Lake Hike- Waterton

This is an awesome hike in Waterton which has been on my to-do list for a while. This is going to be a long day as the drive to Waterton is 3 hours. We would be back in Calgary around 9-10pm.


We have to take a ferry to get to and from trailhead which runs only at specific times ($21 per person, 15 min ride)

More info here:
http://hikingwithbarry.com/2011/08/14/crypt-lake-waterton-hiking-alberta/

It will be a long day and we'll be moving at a decent moderate pace as we need to get back to the trailhead by 5pm to catch the return ferry. It's around 18km return, with 700m elevation gain and one ledge sections where people with fear of heights might cringe. So, please gauge your abilities accordingly.

Note: You'll be expected to sign a waiver. Also, it will be appreciated if you can pay a little money to cover the group's website costs (optional, but appreciated). It costs around $50 per 3 months to run the group!

    hi ferry=$21 and gas cover is $? tnks

    July 16, 2014

    • Pavneet

      Gas will be decided by the driver. I would say return trip would cost between $60-80 total depending on the car. And that amount can then be divided among passengers

    Hello, because we are heading to the south, I live down south , can we meet in the south area?
    wondering.

    May 14, 2014

    • Pavneet

      I'm probably going to change the location to somewhere south where people can leave their cars. There's still a long time to go for this trip, but any options in south? Anderson lrt?

      May 14, 2014

    • Maggie H

      Anderson LRT is good for me, you are right, let us wait till July, thank you very much!

    How difficult is this hike?

    May 13, 2014

    • Brian

      Do the loop to Hell Roaring falls on the way back. Nice little canyon falls without adding much distance...

      3 · May 14, 2014

    • Maggie H

      That will be great, I skipped that fall last time, this time will make it up.

      May 14, 2014

  • Amanda

    I look forward to this hike; i can drive too if needed

    May 13, 2014

  • Maggie H

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
