The Bears Hump  

At only 1.5 km (0.9 miles), 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".

At the end of this climb, you will be greeted by spectacular views of Waterton Valley and Mount Cleveland, the tallest summit in Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park.  The luminescent Middle and Lower Waterton Lakes glisten from this vantage point.  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.

I always love hiking the Bears Hump. The trail is full of switch backs and is very steep, but once you reach the top its worth it. Your rewarded with a beautiful view of Upper Waterton Lake and Watert
