Follow Wishbone trail south from Maskinonge Lake parking lot in Waterton National Park approximatly 6 km. Take the junction to the east (there is no sign, but the junction is obvious)and follow the trail to a stupendous view of where the prairies meet the mountains. Gorgeous views of Upper, Middle and Lower Waterton lakes are had as well from the top. The complete route is only 16 km long and is well worth the effort.

    The view from the top of this mountain over the prairie is stupendous. On a clear day the only thing stopping your view is the curvature of the Earth. Well worth the effort.
