Beautiful hike up to an amazing waterfall and then onto a gorgeous alpine lake, takes 4 hours round trip some steep climbs, and switchbacks but our 7 year old did it OK and the lake is spectacular, well worth the hike.

Our kids were whiners on this one! It is long. We did see bear poop which was the highlight for them. the views were great at one stop off point. The falls were nice but not as nice as Cameron Falls. It is about an hour to the falls and longer if you are going to the lake. Bring water... More

The falls are beautiful, and the hike relatively easy. It is definitely more advanced than Blakiston Falls Hike (starting at Red Rock Canyon), but the scenery is great. We once kept on going to Bertha Lake, but we don't plan to go that far again, as there is a lot of walking in the trees without much scenery, and once... More

I visit Bertha Falls every time I go to Waterton. It's a nice easy hike to the falls. The hike to Bertha Lake is quite a bit further and much steeper, but definitely worth the work! The switchbacks make it easier to ascend than other trails that just go straight up. The hike is well travelled, but not so busy... More

About 15 km drive from the town site to reach the trailhead. Easy 40 minutes hike to two magnificent viewpoints of the falls. Plenty of water cascading down even in mid-August. One of the most beautiful bridal veil falls that I have seen. Amazing photography, with a small crowd around you.

Bertha falls is a great hike because it starts in the Waterton townsite and it's a well sheltered, easy grade hike that almost anyone can do. It's about a 6km round trip, so 3 hours should be plenty of time if you stop and enjoy the view a few times. Take water and a snack. The trail is well defined... More

Great views along the way to a very nice waterfall. Take plenty of water, sunscreen, and bug spray. Not a lot of wildlife enroute to the falls but many good viewpoints. The falls hike is moderate at most, definitely not strenuous.
