Good trail with a fair amount of variety but does not compare to Crypt lake, though not as strenuous.

This trail is an easy walk, it takes about and hour each way from the parking lot to the Lower Bertha Falls.

Went on this hike solo. Took me 90 minutes to get to the lake. When I got to the lake. There was another 4 km walk around the lake. Really easy. Went in the morning. Not too many people. Behind the camp site. There is this beautiful view. Well worth the time.

We went on this hike with a large group of family and friends. It was beautiful and appropriate for people of varying ages and fitness levels. We all took the hike at our own pace and met up at the falls where the kids dunked in the water! There are amazing views from the trail. You can easily access the... More

Another awesome hike we took was to Bertha Falls. This was a terrific diverse hike, and you walked along the side of the mountain with views of the Prince of Wales hotel, the townsite, the lakes and the mountains in the distance, and of course, the beautiful wildflowers as well. There were several options on this hike. You could do... More

OMG don't leave Waterton without seeing Bertha Falls. It is a shorter hike than most - only 45 min to and hour to the falls from the trail head - if you feel like it keep going to Bertha Lake - another hour - it is a quiet, sweet little mountain lake that is peaceful and absolutely worth the trek.

We did this hike on our first day and just went to the falls. We should have planned it for the second day and went all the way to the lake. The falls were beautiful and mesmerizing. We walked up the side to get a better view and it was worth it.

Perfect for a half day hike with some great views. The first half of the hike up to the falls is very easy, but when hiking up to the lake, the switchbacks become steep and challenging for a mountain run, but the swim at the end is worth it.
