Triple Divide Peak, a mere 8,020-foot highpoint in a neighborhood of towering summits, has a claim unique to mountains in the United States. Empty your water bottle on this craggy mountaintop and the water will drain to three distinct oceans: the Artic, the Pacific, and the Atlantic. You can scramble to the top on a 16-mile day hike, or ridge walk north, past nimble mountain goats and insolent grizzly bears, to begin the multi-day mountaineering route known as the Norris/Blackfoot Basin Traverse.
