Very easy hike to Bertha Falls and you can continue onto Bertha Lake. Very easy and family friendly. A lot of switchbacks. Great views. And if you continue onto Bertha Lake it is very much worth it.

Relatively short hike. Nice views and waterfall. Not as stunning as other hikes in the park (i.e. Crypt Lake). But worth it if you have a spare 1/2 day. Good for kids. We saw a bear on this trail, which added to the excitement!

The hike to Bertha Falls is relatively easy and the hike from the falls to the lake has a 1000 foot elevation gain in 2 miles. Great views at the lake and a 3 mile trail around the lake

An amazingly ng experience from just a short hike off the end of the paved road. Wonderful improvements to the viewing platforms.

This is considered an easy hike although it is about an hour or so and can be hot and dusty. However, the falls are worth getting to.

It's a long trek up the mountain side, but it is beautiful. Some parts are a little hard to do, but if you pace yourself you will make it and it is worth it. A walking stick may be helpful. bring water!!! Lots of people...More

As far as I know the trail is closed. Best for you to check the trail status report on the Parks Canada, Waterton website. You could also give them a call.
