Hike to Berg Lake

30 Miles Total - 3500 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Joseph Gulizia

Stunning views, glacial lakes, icebergs, waterfalls, and seclusion.

Deep in the Canadian Rockies you will find the Berg Lake Trail. This strenuous trail takes you 30 miles out and back, while going up 3500 feet. It offers epic views of Mt. Robson and it’s glacier. The glacier empties into Berg Lake, named for it’s many floating icebergs. At all times of the day you will hear the creaking and groaning of the ice, as it is constantly shifting. There are many campsites surrounding the lake, and it is recommended that you reserve a spot in the summer. There are 2 warming huts at the lake, which provide you a nice spot to cook your food, and store it away from the bears. 

The hike starts off gradual, passing a glacial blue lake, and a waterfall. As you get further up the valley you will approach some steep climbs that plateau off on 3 separate occasions. Don’t forget to look back as every upward step allows for a more beautiful view of the valley below. Before the final approach you will find yourself below a massive waterfall. It makes for a perfect spot to take a decent break for lunch. There are plenty of day hikes around the lake, so if you are not on a tight schedule I recommend camping more than one night. 

Enjoy the hike, and as always please pack out your trash.
