Most beautiful backpacking trip I have done
Great backpacking trail. Did a girls trip the first weekend of October! Can't wait to go back again.
Lots of great amenities for the first time multi-day hiker. A rugged but well maintained trail that makes this a good choice for anyone just starting to get serious about spending a few nights in the outdoors. The scenery is non-stop breathtaking.
Berg Lake camp is the place to stay. Awesome and challenging trail. Never ending beautiful scenery.
Beautiful backpacking trail with lakes, valleys, streams and water falls and glaciers.
It was beautiful and clear on the 2 day hike to Burg Lake. Rainy, on the way back on the third day, but lovely again as we walked out on day 4.
Amazing! The switch backs are a challenge but the whole thing is so worth it! If you do it in one day it will take you around 12 hours or so!
Amazing! One of my favourite places of all time. Such beautiful glaciers, waterfalls, snow capped peaks, crystal clear lakes etc.
I have done this twice. Go all the way up to Snowbird Pass. Just love it.
Incredible waterfalls, beautiful lakes with mountainous backdrops, and plenty of glaciers. I hiked this trail in July 15... The ONLY downside was the large number of mosquitoes and flies. Snowbird Pass and Tobogan Falls are worth the day hikes as well.
I backpacked this in July'14' for four days and had awesome clear skies for all four days. The amazing amount of variety along the trail is stunning and will keep you mesmerized the whole way. If you are an avid hiker, this is a top five anywhere in the world. I camped at Berg and Rearguard though this year (YES, I'm going back), I think I'll take a site near the flowing river at Emperor Falls for a incoming night.
Add Snowbird Pass, at least up to the Robson Glacier and Mumm Basin if you have more time BUT do GO..! What a road trip (fifteen hours for me from WA State-USA.
Its 6.5KM to the first campsite Kinney Lake, an easy hike along the Robson river with huge trees. Kinney lake is nice. 4km more and your at whitehorn, theres a bit of a climb from kinney but nothing difficult. Here the views of waterfalls is really awesome. Get ready for a climb cause the next 5km till you get to Emperor Falls campground is tuff you'll climb 500m over 4km of it. Emperor Falls its self is about 1km before the campground watch for the side trail on the right, Emperor falls is huge! now leaving Emperor Falls campsite your at the 16km mark you have an easy 3km to Marmot campground. Marmot is a nice campground to bask in the sun with views of Berg Lake Glacier and is on the edge of berg lake. 2 more km and your at Berg Lake campground an easy hike and the largest campground with a chalet to hang out in (great for rainy days, but no overnight use). then an easy 1km or so till Rearguard, nice views of the backside of Mt Robson. Another 1km and you hit Robson Pass this is a great campsite to base other hikes out of Snowbird Pass, Mums Basin, Toboggan Falls. All the Berg Lake Trail campsites have something to offer you cant go wrong anywhere on this trail. A must do hike.
STUNNING hike and well worth the 23km trek. Only thing I would have done differently is bring my hiking poles. Berg Lake/Mount Robson is overwhelmingly gorgeous. My partner and I spent a few days camping at Berg Lake and did a few day hikes nearby. We did not want to leave. A+++
