Things to know about 
Berg Lake Trail

Berg Lake Trail was on my Bucket List for this summer. I never though I could have done this early in June but it was possible! The trail was in absolutely great shape without any snow. It was actually perfect to do it early in the season, mid-week, when it is quieter. 

​The first thing you need to know : 
- You need to register if you want to do the hike overnight at the Mt. Robson Visitor Centre to get your camping permit. The Centre is open from 8-5PM Pacific Time until June 15th and then from June 15th until Labour day it is open from 8-7PM.

It was super easy to get the permit. We just showed up there, paid $15,  watched a little educational video about the trail and wildlife, and then were good to go.  It is possible to book online after June 15th directly on the  BC Discover Camping website.

Things you need to not forget :
-  Water purifying device
-  Camping Gear
- Sunscreen, you are at high altitude so it is easy to burnt!
- Clothes for any kind of weather. At high altitude temperatures can change dramatically! 
- Mosquito repellent ( we were there beginning of June and we got so many mosquito bites
- Bear Spray!! We saw a bear on the trail on June 2nd and we had to use our bear spray as the bear kept coming toward us. 
​- Camping Permit
​- Toilet paper, there is none in the camping toilet
- There is some bear proof food locker so you don't need to bring one.

You need to choose which campground you are going to stay at when you are making your reservation. Make sure to plan your trip ahead. In my case, we left at 5PM for our hike and we camped at the Emperor Lakes Campground on km 16 so we could have some time the day after to do a day hike and hike back down. If the weather is bad make sure to choose one with a shelter (the only one who doesn't have one is Emperor Lakes).
Here is the different campground you could choose one at  7 km (Kinney Lake), 11 km (Whitehorn), 16km (Emperor), 19 km ( Marmot), 21 km (Berg Lake), 22km (Rearguard), 23km (Robson Pass). Here is all the information about the Campground. 

It is possible to do that hike in one day, if you are running; I have some friends who did this last summer. If you don't want to hike the whole trail you don't need to register to get a permit. You can also bike the first 7km of the trail if you want to save some time.

If you are not sure of the number of nights you want to stay and which day hikes you want to do around Berg Lake, here is more hike to do around the area (scroll down at the end of the page). We did Mumm Basin and it was totally awesome to get a higher view of Berg Lake. If you are there after the July long weekend I recommend that you do Snow Bird Pass. Unfortunately, it was closed for caribou at the time we were there. 

The trail is in super great shape, there aren't many places where you can get lost thanks to lots of signs. There are a lot of bridges so your feet should stay dry. It is really impressive how well the trail built. 

Here are some photos from the first lake you will see, Kinney Lake on the km 7.  

Here are some photos from the suspension bridge the first big waterfall Whitefalls, Falls of the pool and Emperor Falls.
