GMS Week Crypt Lake Hike 7/25/14. Beautiful day to be in Waterton National Park. David Schuler, Allison McCarthy, Pat Keane-Richmond, Ellen-T. Lamm, Maggie Williams, Timothy Sharp, Catherine O’Mara, Ian MacCallan, and David King. The hike features a 15 minute boat ride across Upper Waterton Lake to the trailhead at Crypt Landing. The trail passes close to 4 spectacular waterfalls: Hell Roaring Falls (1 km), Twin Falls (3.5 km), Burnt Rock Falls (5.6 km) and Crypt Falls (8 km). A highlight for many is the steel ladder and 60 foot tunnel through the mountain. After a short maneuver around a cliff (with cable for added security), hikers arrive at beautiful Crypt Lake. Total distance of 10.8 miles and 2300 feet of elevation gain.
