I took this trail with my wife. It is not strenuous or challenging if you have some degree of fitness. The views are really beautiful. The falls are nice, but that is not what it is really about. It is a nice point to enjoy yourself and go back; but the views of the lake and surrounding mountains, the forest,... More

Beautiful views going up this trail and well worth seeing the pretty Bertha Falls. Lots of good places for photos. When we started out two fawns were within three feet of us eating leaves. You can sit on the rocks up at the top of the falls and enjoy the peace and beauty.

Around 1 hour hike overlooking Waterton lake. The falls themselves are nothing to write home about but the way is nice

As you climb you need to take time and stop at some of the trail pull outs and see the lake below and the Lodge. We had the trail all to ourselves and enjoyed the serenity. We found the falls without any problem and took our pictures of the above bridge and below bridge.

Nice easy hike to the falls. we visited late in August and I imagine the falls are quite a bit more spectacular earlier in the season when more water is running. Was still worth the short hike to see the falls.

Waterton National Park is a fabulous place to spend a weekend. All the beauty of Banff and Jasper without the touristy crowds. Bertha Falls is within the town site - a short little walk from the center of town. Well worth a visit.

This is a gorgeous, well traveled trail. The falls are picturesque and it's easy to get a safe photo opp in front of them by standing on the bridge.

Lovely hike. The first part goes to lower falls. The second part, while worth the hike, is quite steep. Definitely worth doing.
