Akamina Lake - Waterton - Hiking Alberta

 

Tiny Akamina Lake is a hidden gem tucked away near Cameron Lake in Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta, Canada.

 

 

This short, easy, flat 1.0 KM (⅝ mile) return-distance, trail through lush forest and undergrowth to Akamina Lake begins about half way along the east side of the parking area for Cameron Lake. 

The quiet stroll leads to a beautiful, pristine, emerald, sub-alpine lake.  The pictures tell this story of this short, easy from Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta, Canada.

The soft-surface trail leads to a viewing platform and bench.  Side trails in the immediate area allow different views of the lake with surrounding mountains and marshland.

The water is cold and crystal clear in this incredibly beautiful place.
