Trail Type

Located just off the entrance road, turn right into the parking area after you pass the Parks Canada Operations building and find yourself on this unique patch of shoreline. Driftwood from Waterton Lakes washes up on shore and creates a beautiful natural mosaic of rock and wood. This spot is perfect for a picnic, with iconic views of Mount Vimy framing middle Waterton Lake and the Prince of Wales hotel atop the hill in the distance. Many like to create their own driftwood artwork during their visit, but remember the Leave No Trace principals; leave the beach and the driftwood how it was when you got there and take nothing but memories with you.
