We went to Joffre lakes in the morning of a mid-week after the long weekend - what a perfect time to enjoy the park all to ourselves! I read a lot about the high elevation, mountainous climb and possible ice during this time of year (end of May 2015). It turned out that the hike was all clear, smoothed out,... More

This is a spectacular hike that can be accomplished in 5-6 hours and leads to an amazing vista of 3 lakes and a glacier. Entirely worthwhile and highly recommended as a full day experience. Bring a picnic to enjoy at the summit.

Missed the sign coming from Pemberton, could have been because there was a classic car rally coming from the other direction and the car park is just past a bend. Managed to turn round eventually and get back. Toilets are basic! The walk to the first lake is quite short but it was icy so made walking a little hard.... More

Joffre Lakes offer 3 spectacular glacier lakes, along with some beautiful forest views and waterfalls along the way. The first lake is minutes from the parking area and is easy to access for all ages. The second and third lakes require a bit of a hike. Trails have been redone in the last few years to make it more accessible.... More

We were staying at Lillooet Lake and drove up to Joffre Lakes to hike to the top lake. 1st time on showshoes and the track was iced up in some places which made it hard work but the reward was worth it. The falls were amazing and the view at the top lake was fantastic!!

trail is hard packed and very icy, dangerously so. Need to have some type of traction aide for your boots.

Hands down one of the best hikes in the corridor. A must do but wear the right shoes for hiking. The upper lake is amazing and the new waterfall is unreal.

We love to hike here - this time it was snowy and we couldn't do the full loop but it's just divinely beautiful. If heaven exists it looks like this.
