The map covers all of Waterton Lakes National Park, the eastern end of Akamina-Kishinena Provincial Park, and the Goat Haunt or northern area of Glacier National Park, Montana, at the south end of Upper Waterton Lake.

The front of the map covers all of the hiking and biking trails departing from Waterton townsite, Red Rock Parkway, Akamina Parkway, and the Goat Haunt region of Glacier National Park. Popular trails covered include Carthew-Alderson, Crypt Lake, Goat Lake, Twin Lakes, Forum and Wall lakes, and the Tamarack Trail. Also on the front is an inset map (1:35,000) of Waterton townsite, with accommodation and services marked for your convenience.
