Backpack the Berg Lake Trail

Berg Lake Trail - Search Nearby - Added by Cory Jade

This is a great starter hike for learning how to backpack. It is extremely safe providing bear proof food containers and 2 mountee stations on the trail. The scenery is amazing and worth the trip!

This hike starts at Mount Robson visitor centre and has 8 campsites along the hike. Be sure to stop by the visitor center for up-to-date details. We stayed at campsites located at Kinney Lake 7km in, then whitehorn 11 km in, and then Berg lake 21km in. Kinney lake is a light blue coloured lake, next moving up to the emperor falls which stormed down on to rock. After emperor falls you hit berg lake and the berg lake glacier. This hike was was difficult but well worth the time to do it. The hardest part of the hike is going from whitehorn campsite to emperor falls where the elevation gain is a lot for a short period of time. 10/10 would do this hike again. We did the hike at the end of May and were blessed with amazing weather and clear skis. I would like to do this hike again in august when the Glacier lake is less icy.
