We visited Joffre Lakes Provincial Park in mid-July. My first piece of advice: Get their early! We arrived at 9 AM and the car park was still relatively empty but a new car was arriving every few minutes (if not more). The first lake is...More

Great intermediate hike! Updated trails from the parking lot onward. Approximately the last 1 km at the top is rocky. Took about 2 1/2 hours bottom to top round trip. I would highly recommend this hike.

My wife and I hiked this from the parking lot to the 3rd lake. Beautiful glacier at the end. Not too strenuous but some elevation gain on the way. Very busy but the crowds thinned out a bit near the end. The lakes are pristine...More

I hiked this in Mid-September, it was a spectacular experience, I'd call it an intermediate hike with a certain percentage (20% or so) I'd call "difficult" due to steeper grades, bigger steps, uneven ground or tree roots... More
