Unless you're going camping in the campground or fishing, no reason to do this trail. It's short not challenging with not much to see.

This is a beautiful but steep trail. Don't hike this trail if you are scared of a challenge! My friends and I decided to spend May long up at the lake and camp; when we arrived at the lake it was frozen and still had a fair amount of snow all around the lake. We decided to truck through the snow to the far end of the lake where we found the campsite. I had done this trail years before also and it snowed on us in the middle of July.... life in the mountains! Regardless of all the snow both times it was a beautiful hike and a peaceful place to camp.

Not a great one when it's still damp out. About 1km in, we ran into a puddle we couldn't get around without wading through. Considering how thick the mosquitos were, we decided to turn back & try another trail.

it says highway 40 is closed. how did you get into this area two weeks ago??

Didn't make the Upper Falls as still too much snow. Good walk anyway.

Would have been great but it is still snowed in. We made it farther than most since we had poles and proper hikers on, but still couldn't make it to the lake. The falls are beautiful though! I'd love to try again in summer.

Disappointing but a ✔️ off the list

We hiked Bertha Lake trail yesterday but unfortunately, due to the snow, we weren't able to make it all the way to the lake. About 3/4 of the way up we hit feet upon feet of snow, no trails or signs of trail left, and didn't have snowshoes to go any further. After turning around and making our way down we took the detour to Bertha Bay. The only wildlife we saw was the Big Horn Sheep and its baby that followed us on the Bay trail and some paw prints at the top in all the snow.
Great day for a hike.

Great trail. We went late April. Still a lot of snow. I recommend continuing towards the campground to get to the lakeside with some shore to explore. Skipping rocks and some BBQ areas and only a few min farther.
