Some people are Waterfall affecionados. While Cameron falls is impressive, I find the lesser known Waterfalls more impressive. For iinstance, the small Waterfall behind Snowshoe Cabin is one of my favorite discoveries. Go to the small stream by the cabin, and follow it downstream until it hits the creek out of Twin Lakes.

Walking back behind the curtain of Forum Falls is also a fun time.

The walk up from the lake to Hell Roaring is also another favorite of mine. Perhaps one of these days someone will get down that thing in a kayak. Of course an impressive waterfall called Wild Thing is found on Cameron creek. If you park at the expert's choice pullout, from the road you can see a small falls in a canyon. If you walk up stream about 300m you will come to the base of a three stepped rapid.

For a good Waterfall hike, the Virginia Falls Trail passes by several spectacular falls. Upstream of St. Mary's Falls is the Deadhorse Canyon. This impressive red rock canyon has quite a few log jams and small waterfalls. It is definitely a scenic place. Just don't fall in. Over the last few years a number of deaths in the park have occured this way.

For shutter bugs, perhaps some extra info on how to shoot waterfalls may help

Great photos of the waterfalls, we'll have to check them out next time we're in Waterton. Our last trip was somewhat rushed, but we're hoping to take some more time to investigate Waterton's rushing water. I do agree, those little known waterfalls that a person finds in the middle of nowhere, those are the special ones.

I'm planning a trip to Waterton near the end of August. Will hopefully check out the ones along the Hell Roaring creek trail, Forum falls and a few others.
