Dazzling landscapes, amazing wildlife and adrenaline-fueled terrain accompany your every boot step on an extraordinary hiking adventure in five Rocky Mountain national parks in the United States and Canada — Waterton, Glacier, Kootenay, Jasper and Banff. Set out where two cross-border friends meet in the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Relish the spectacular view of your hard-earned climb at the Grinnell Glacier. And cross the Great Divide to the East side of the Rockies en route to Banff National Park, Canada’s first national park.

• In Glacier National Park, hike to a cliff overlooking Hidden Lake, watching for marmots and mountain goats.
