An amazing late afternoon in September!!

Came up from Texas, hiked this in late September, very wet. We did the trail straight to peak 2. Excellent hike, lots of stair climbing, both wood and placed rock. Up to the last bit towards peak 2 it's simple, but a heavy leg workout. The top bit of the trail just before peak 2 starts having some tighter squeezes and chains to help you up steep inclines, and then there's a switchback. We had to stop there because of the wet and some of our party didn't have shoes that could handle it. Disappointing, but we'll be back in a couple months to beat it!

Love rollerblading here!!! Great for a run or a simple walk after work.

It’s a work out for this hike as it’s a 2000 ft continuous rise, leading to spectacular views of Squamish town and Howe Sound, take snacks or lunch so you can relax and enjoy the views.

The most beautiful hike!

Beautiful scenic ocean views, gorgeous huge trees and mossy forest. I loved it here and look forward to going back! Well behaved dogs are allowed to be off leash which is fantastic. It's steep in some parts but really well maintained.

pretty rough but so worth it. Best climb yet.

A beautifully maintained trail around a lake. Some people were fishing, others were on canoes. The trail is flat and easy for everyone. The trail loop itself takes about 40+ minutes to complete.

I went with a 5 year old and a 2 year old ....cant take a stroller so we didnt reach the falls but really nice walk

not really exciting, the birds are beautiful though

The stairs at the start are quite challenging, but the view is well worth it

Sad to see this trail so crowded, can do with high heels on as the trail is much easier than years ago. Didn’t see any rangers , outhouses stink and even the area around middle lake near outhouses smells like urine. Overcrowded parking lots and the experience now “speaking for myself” is a major turnoff in the summer months.
Suggest going in the off season mid-week. Views are spectacular just minus the huge amount of people and slinky outhouses.

We arrived at 9.10 on Thursday morning and the car park was barely 1/3 full. The hike to Upper Joffre was moderately difficult for this 54 year old but certainly doable. It took my husband and I around 75 minutes to make it to Upper Joffre after stopping for many photographs of the spectacular lakes and surrounds along the way.

There are people coming and going from the car park so hang around and wait for someone to leave, it will probably only be a 5 minute or so wait.

A must do hike if you’re in the area - each lake is a beautiful turquoise blue colour.

Other than being very busy this is a great trail!

Beautiful hike with a rewarding destination at the top. I love the view from peak 2. Make sure to pack a snack to enjoy at the top. The chipmunks are friendly and will devour any food left behind. It gets a little chilly at the top so pack a light jacket.

on Joffre Lakes

Joffre Lake was breathtaking as usual. I recommend to arrive before 9 am for a good parking spot. The hike was enjoyable but it was over crowded during the long weekend. I would recommend going on a weekday if possible.

The direct trail to the lighthouse view point took less than 8 minutes. The view was OK. If the private gate nearby is open, enter the driveway and you'll be surprised how much closer the lighthouse is from there. Juniper point will also surprise you with a great view at the end.

Hiked this beautiful trail today. no more smog and the air is 100% clear. The city started to force no parking rule along the highway. I arrived at 10:15 this morning and got the last spot at the overflow parking spot. People were forced to drive 2.5 to 5 km further and walk back to the trail head.

I backpacked this trail over Memorial Weekend and it didn’t disappoint. There were few crowds since it was shoulder scenic which I prefer. Scenic views with a very rewarding end at Upper Joffre Lake. There was still quite a bit of snow heading towards the upper lake and while I always wear gortex boots in these conditions, my microspikes made a huge difference in my experience. I took a risk and hammock camped and got really lucky to find a spot near the lake as there are very few trees around conducive to hammock camping. I’d highly recommend at least a night of camping because it truly is beautiful and you can spend a few hours hiking up to the glacier but I’d bring a tent so you’re not limited in options.

Fabulous! Did this hike last weekend. Was still bit smoky but still beautiful! Hiked to the campground and back. With breaks and photos was 3hrs.

Beautiful hike. Worth the almost 3 hour drive from Burnaby. We hiked Joffre lakes during the week when the area was experiencing poor air quality due to the many forest fires. Could not see clear views of the glaciers and lakes but still gorgeous views seen through the smoky haze.

Amazing!

Great intermediate hike with lots of scenic points along the way. Even in the drizzle today, the views we're spectacular. Our favorite was the 2nd lake. Such an amazing turquoise colour.

Started at 8:15 on Tuesday. It was perfect and absolutely stunning. Next time will do overnight

It's was really nice, and we had lots of fun! We saw different little places to swim and enjoyed the nature.
