Lower Bertha Falls

Waterton Park, Alberta

Lower Bertha Falls Professional Review and Guide

"This popular day hike along Waterton Lake shows off the ecology of the ever-changing forest. At the end of the trek is the graceful veil of Lower Bertha Falls. The trail begins in a stand of aspens, climbing gradually as it follows the western shore of Waterton Lake. As the trail rises above the lakeshore, it crosses a mixed forest of lodgepole pine, fir, and mountain maple. Rocky outcrops bear the snags of limber pine, which thrive in extreme environments but here have fallen prey to white pine blister rust. An overlook about 1 mile (1.7 km) down the trail offers sweeping views of the ranges east of the lake, as far south as Mount Cleveland across the international border. At 10,466 feet above sea level, this summit is the loftiest in either park."
