From Hawkins to Lineham is a bit of a blur in my memory banks. I blame it on the wind which was absolutely relentless. Honestly, Waterton would be so much more enjoyable without it! The route was obvious and easy between Hawkins and Lineham.

After finally summiting Mount Lineham we were pleasantly surprised by the excellent scree ski that took us down to the Tamarack Trail. Note that when you are heading down the lower slopes of Lineham you should angle left down the clearest part of the gully and you will connect with the trail. There was a lot of recent bear sign in that valley as well!
