On top of the World -Waterton Bearhump Mountain
The Bears Hump is a short, strenuous but rewarding climb that begins at the Waterton Visitor Resource Centre.
Once known as Bear Mountain by the Piikani (Blackfoot) tribe for its humplike appearance, this rocky trail becomes a veritable staircase by the half way mark yet ends on the flat dome of the "Hump".
The views of the rolling prairies to the north will give you unique and breathtaking insight as to why Waterton is described as "where the mountains meet the prairies".
Bears Hump is a short family hike that allows even the most novice hikers the feeling of standing on top of the world.
