Our big hike day in Waterton was to Bertha Lake. We had originally planned to do the Carthew-Alderson hike, but the road to Cameron Lake was closed because of flood damage. So we picked this one instead. It was still a good hike. Not quite as long, but turns out it was still enough to give us sore muscles for a few days.
The first part of the trail goes to Lower Bertha Falls. This is where a lot of people turn around and go back. On our return, we passed a family with a young boy who was obviously not happy about this much walking. He asked us if the falls were worth it, so of course we said yes. His dad said ‘Good answer!’; he clearly had no intention of turning back. I guess it gave the little guy a boost, but we had a feeling that once they got there he was going to think it was NOT worth it. They were nice falls, but probably a lot nicer in the spring when the volume of water is much greater.
