Forum Peak

Forum Peak is at the east end of Akamina Ridge and the northwest end of Mount Custer, which is mostly in Montana, USA. Although not the high point of Akamina Ridge, it is the triple divide point for drainage to the Arctic and Pacific Oceans and to Hudson Bay. Access is from Waterton Lakes National Park via Akamina Pass and Forum Lake. Ther is a good trail with easy to moderate scrambling and the views are spectacular.
