Our final day, we did a shorter hike in to Lineham Falls before driving on home.
Lineham Falls is tall, cascading down a very large headwall.
The hike in to reach the falls is a clear, good trail, wandering through sections of forest and open meadow.
We passed one section that was washed out with an apparent detour - likely the result of last year's (2013) floods, but it was otherwise in great shape.
It's a pretty hike, on typically red Waterton rock trail, and perfect for a shorter return-day hike.
