A great and simple hike for me and my 2 young daughter's. Little harder to breath with the smoke. Took us 1hr.

Great reward for the effort.

Beautiful little lake with tons of very hungry little pan sized Rainbow Trout

Would love to do this hike with someone !

I hiked the trail to the lake. The round trip was 4hrs 20min. With a 15min. rest at the lake. Definitely take your time and watch your step for the first kilometer as others have mentioned lots of rocks and roots to catch you, keep your eyes peeled. This was a very pleasant walking in the old growth sections. The large boulders with the Moss and trees growing around and amongst them is
very grounding making you feel very small. A good hike definitely not a Beginners Trail.

Great place to watch the sun set at the end of this trail. Very easy and a nice walk all year round

It’s an awesome workout and easily the most beautiful lake within 45 minutes of down town Vancouver!

Amazing hike minus the amount of mosquitos and flies. Be sure to pack plenty of bug spray.

Easy hike to the chalet at the base of twin falls. Lots of switchback to the top of twin falls. We did a loop out along whaleback/ isolated peak route to the ACC hut. Lots of steep climbing to hit the ridge but some beautiful views.

Great hike, beautiful views. Very quiet compared to Emerald lake, saw nobody off the main lake trail

Perfect on nice hot day light hike with few very nice swim sports...

Look out for the blue marks! Windy and nice weather.

The Squamish River was flowing fast; some people tried to drift across on pool inflatables. Don't do that. Some people tried to slack line across the cable. They and their packs were dangling above the river; their self-rescue took a long time. Jay, the ferryman, was in the right place at the right time. But other online comments suggest that's not always the case, and cars have been vandalized. This is a nice, steep hike with a pretty lake at the end. But the logistics of getting to the trailhead make it a Not Recommended hike. Also, the trail isn't a trail; it's a route.

Easy to access but there is no formal trailhead so parking is just off the side of the road. The trail is well laid out and offers links to other trails. Beautiful little lake. I was glad to have the fully paid app as I wandered onto another trail and needed to rely on the app to gat back on track.

Awesome trail! Well marked and super fun. We went up from the top of alpine way instead. Took us two and a half hours to get up (9km). Pretty easy sailing until the end which was really hard to get over the rocks. About an hour and a half to get to our car.

This is the best hike i have ever done... views are just unreal!

Scenic coastal route one way followed by a forest path and road back to the parking lot. Very enjoyable and not too difficult, as long as you're prepared for navigating amongst roots and rocks one way and elevation change the other.

would have given it 5 stars but the mosquitos were horrific in July.

joffre is as picturesque as anything you could ever wish for.

I would love to go but only drive a car, if anyone is willing to give me a ride I will pay for gas and thanks, could meet at the start of the logging road. But I can only go up on Wednesday’s-6043395314 thanks so much!

Fun hike with varied terrain. Views weren't great due to smoke but saw a few mountain goats grazing at the top. The access road was in terrible condition, lots of ditches for a lengthy stretch, suggest going in a high clearance vehicle. Stop and say hi to the lady camped at 36km with the honey sign, shes a colourful character and makes great honey!

Solid hike, the lakes are beautiful, but this seems to be a really buggy area and views were blocked partially by smoke, both of which contributed to 3 star rating.

Steady grade all the way, took the short route up from the lake and the long route back down, recommend this. Views from the ridge are spectacular!

It was an amazing trail, very well-trafficked. The 6 first kilometers are hard but then it gets easy. The views are very worthy it. I went when the wildfires were happening and got cloudy skies and smoke and the views were not less.

Decent hike up, scrambled up to the peak, views were below ave due to wildfire smoke, otherwise would have given 4 stars. Getting to the lookout is simple enough. This was the first scramble I've ever attempted, went up off path via larger rocks to the right which provided decent footholds, came down on the path which is mostly loose rock and dirt, took a few falls, would not recommend coming down this way, stick to the larger rock segments.

Great Hike! There’s is currently a lot of smoke in the area due to wildfires and we’ve met a fair amount of people but definitely a fun hike!

Beautiful walk to Sproat Lake.

The tails are marked, but poorly orientation wise. Many trails leading in multiple directions so be prepared to get turned around once or twice. Pay attention to the maps. I essentially spent two hours just marking out my own route - so get creative!
