Waterton Park finally opened Akamina Parkway for non-motorized vehicles, so we can walk, bicycle, cross-country ski (right, it’s uphill most of the way in) or snow-shoe. So we walked 4.1km up to the falls. It’s 16km to Cameron Lake so not sure we’ll make it that far as we’d have to hike back as well unless we overnite it at the cabin. As this parkway has more rock than Red Rock Canyon Parkway, there didn’t appear to be as much new growth and there were a lot more burned trees, very devastating.

[…] Waterton Park finally opened the Akamina Parkway to Cameron Lake for non-motorized vehicles for winter activities. We hiked up 4.1km to the falls. I don’t think we’ll be walking 16km to the lake and certainly not on cross-country skis as it’s up most of the way, then a scary down coming back. I might do it with my downhill skis if I didn’t have to walk up carrying my skis! Anyway, it certainly was different than the Red Rock Canyon Parkway as it is mostly trees and rock, not much new undergrowth that we could see under the snow. You can view all my photos here. […]
