Emperor Falls is the largest and best known waterfall on the Robson River in Mount Robson Provincial Park. It is located a short distance downstream of and southwest from the outlet of Berg Lake.[1][2]

Stature[edit]

The falls stand about 150 feet high, 5300 ft above sea level. After dropping over the edge of the cliff the water strikes a ledge just under halfway down, this causes the formation of a roostertail which produces a large amount of spray.

Access[edit]

To get to the falls, you hike along the Berg Lake trail for approximately 15 km, during which time you will gain about 2500 feet of elevation. A more complete description of the hike can be found in the Berg Lake article.
