A place unlike any other - Waterton Lakes National Park is a unique blend of unusual geology, mild climate, an abundance of wildlife, rare wild flowers and a rich human history. Native legends speak of the sacredness of this land and its inhabitants. Early explorers were touched by the magic of Waterton, and today we recognize and protect, for all time, this land where the Mountains meet the Prairie. Big Horn Sheep and Mule Deer amble down the streets while herds of elk gather on the prairie. Perfect for hiking, biking, trail riding and photography...just to mention a few!
