Moderately difficult Stoney Indian Trail allows spectacular alpine views, beautiful waterfalls and scenic natural mountain scenery all along its way. This high mountain pass trail is exposed to wind and sudden weather changes for which hikers should be prepared.
A travel corridor between the Waterton and Belly River Valleys this region is named after the Stoney Indians who used the trail to reach hunting and fishing areas within the Belly River Valley. The Stoney Indian Trail mostly follows the Cosley lake shore to the Cosley Lake Campsite. However, remember that no open fires are allowed within this area.
