We took the shuttle to Waterton in '07 to start the GDT and talked to the shuttle people
about getting a shuttle back to the States from Waterton when we were done in 6 or 8 weeks.
We were told that they could drop us in Canada (one way fare) but that they couldn't bring
us back across the border as a one way trip when we returned. We solved the problem by
hitching - took us 3 rides to get from Pincher Creek to East Gloacier. That translates to 2
or 3 rides to get from Waterton to East Clacier.
Or - you can take a taxi from Waterton to the border crossing, get out and walk across the
border and catch the shuttle from Chief Mt. As I recall, the taxi can't take you across the
border either. But at least it can get you to Chief Mt. - where you WILL have to deal with
the border patrol. And that WILL require either a passport or a DL and birth certificate.

The trail is somewhat more spectacular that way. It's easy enough to get a shuttle back. Walking into Canada maybe easier than trying to get in that country over the road and dealing with a border guard. SlyRoy wrote:
I am planning a hike, starting the first week of Aug., to begin in Glacier Park. I have found, online, a shuttle to the Prince of Wales Hotel. I will be going from East Glacier, arriving by trail, to the start of the PCT. I will only be doing the Glacier section this year.First Question? Will I need a passport and/or other permits to go to the trail head?Second? What is the process for getting a back county pass?
