Overview
September and June are the best months to enjoy this hike. This hike involes off trail navigation. Review triplogs, photos and the route to understand the terrain before heading out.


Mount Alderson (8,832 feet, 2,692 m) is a barren, wind swept peak in Waterton Lakes National Park. The peak can be reached via a pretty straightforward off trail ridgeline route originating from the Carthew-Alderson Trail and more specifically the Carthew Lakes area. There is a well worn use trail to the peak, however, some class three scrambling may be necessary to negotiate some cliff bands along the distinct ridgeline.
