Pretty great!

Love this trail especially the Steep Ravine portion. Beautiful ravine with the added shade of our coastal Redwoods! Park free at Stinson and end your hike relaxing at the beach. Complete day!

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

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

plan being there early... it fills up in q hurry!

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!

Nice Hike, but not breathtaking, may be because of the smoke blocking the view these days...
Lots of bugs.
The beginning is in the shade which is nice, with a beautiful waterfall at the start, it is worth the little detour.
The campsite is located at the following lake as the rainbow lake is Whistler's reservoir.
The hike is steep indeed but not super hard. I had lots of weight on my back and it was manageable.
An advice, wait for the smoke to go away, otherwise it's not worth the effort.

Great hike! Stunning views! Beautiful lakes!

We had two kiddos and a husband on crutches, so we only managed to get to the first lake, which is practically outside the parking lot, and even that was stunning. I can't wait to go back and do the full hike to see the other two.

Good change to an alpine hike from more typical lower mainland trails. Nice flowers, butterflies and birds as well. The views at the top are supposed to be great but visibility today was limited due to smoke. It was still really good even though I didn’t get the “full experience” at the top. The trail itself is in excellent condition though the same cannot be said for the road. The road has a lot of washout but they are really solid bottomed so you don’t need to worry about anything but clearance.

From the Matt Davis which quickly opens up to beautiful, rolling hills overlooking the Pacific into switchbacking down through evergreen forests to the open coastal trail of the Dipsea to a gorgeous, shaded Redwood forest along Webb Creek on the Steep Ravine, this hike has it all.

A couple short-but-tight street walks/crossings (from Pantoll across to Matt Davis and in town to Dipsea trailhead) so beware of traffic.

We parked at the Pantoll station and hiked Steep Ravine to Dipsea. Lunch at Stinson. Back up Matt Davis. Did not care for Matt Davis. A lot of poison oak and not nearly as pretty as Steep Ravine/Dipsea. Quite the climb on a warm late afternoon as well. Good workout dripping sweat the first couple miles on Matt Davis though so...there's that. We hiked Friday, July 20th. Trails weren't terribly crowded. We passed about five or six groups and a couple of solo hikers on the way down. One runner. A few solo hikers coming down Matt Davis while we climbed up.

Did this hike in the winter months with some snowshoes and was amazed by the stunning scenery. One of my favorite hikes of all time.

People are right, parking is hard to get there early. The view is also the best in the morning. It’s an easy short hike, though some children and seniors may find it difficult. There are good views from the bottom of the pile so even those with physical disabilities could enjoy the view of moraine.

Started at 9am & finished a little passed noon, totaling 7.5 miles. Started at Dipsea & veered further by hiking the borders of the ocean coast, then crossed over to the Matt Trail. The incline at the beginning was definitely a burn, but a great workout. It was hot, but cooled down in the shaded areas on Matt Trail. Very little water in the creeks. No waterfall. There is a restroom at the parking lot between the 2 trails. Trails were very clean. Views were beautiful. Saw lots of blue dragonflies on the Matt Trail. Would love to do this hike again in the spring or after a good rain.

ran the last 10km very easy

Amazing views! It took us 4 hours with 4 kids (5 years old - 10). Little dusty during August. Recommend to start with with the harder trail, the Dipsea Trail.

The trailhead is located in the parking lot behind Olives market. The trail itself is poorly marked and we passed several people that were confused about which way to go. The shortest and most direct route is walking down an active railroad line, which is not that wide and you have to be really on the alert for incoming trains. There are several paths that wind through the trees in between the river and the railway line. There are some picturesque views of the glacier fed river on the way to the train wreck. The train wreck itself is several twisted and deformed boxcars hidden in the trees. Over the years the boxcars have become covered with graffiti. The quality of the graffiti artwork is nothing special. I would not repeat this hike again.

Great hike! Did it clockwise, and It was nice walking down with the view in the end. However I think I would have preferred the other direction. On the top of the open grassland take some of the smaller trails to get further up on the boulders visible from the trail. Amazing view over the beach, SF skyline and on clear days you can see the entire Bay Area!

Wow

Nice Trail easy to follow! Beautifull forest i recomend,

One of the great California hikes. Mostly shady. Wide variety of bio communities.

Excellent hike! One of my favourites to date.

Parking is a bitch. So I started to walk the 12km road. Got picked up by a french couple. Starting walking down got picked up by a German couple. Ppl are super nice.

Beautiful park, with different trails to choose from.

The tip I kept getting was to arrive before 7 am, however the lot fills up by 5 am and stays closed a good portion of the day. Allow yourself a couple of tries to get in. When you finally do, you’re rewarded with the most unreal view for a short hike. It’s worth battling the crowd to get in and if you try, you can find a quiet spot.

A nice view of Moraine Lake, but there are better views available on the Shoreline Trail.

This hike was just incredible. Very steep but so worth it! If you manage to make it to the 2nd lake, push on for the waterfall and 3rd lake. There's quite a bit of scrambling to get to it but it was worth the effort. My husband and I took our 6 yr old and 4yr old twins and they made it the whole way, without being carried at all. It's such a fun and engaging hike! Due to scheduling constraints, we were forced to go on a Saturday and we weren't able to get there until 10 and the parking lots were already full. The trail was very crowded. It took us about 6 hours start to finish with 3 kiddos in tow. We were so glad we made the 2.5 hr drive from Vancouver-- which was a stunning drive btw.

Did this hike at 9am on the Monday of a long weekend (August 6th) in just under 4 hours. Only saw a few other hikers, no groups of kids blaring music, and jumping in the lake at the end is the perfect finish.

Awesome went in early July. But there was still a lot of snow

Just did this hike yesterday, August 5th. We spent a total of 5 hours to complete the hike including an hour at the top, and stopping every few minutes to enjoy the views.

I would recommend accounting for an extra 1.5 hours for the drive to and back from the trailhead. The drive isnt super bad, any 4x4 pickup truck or a jeep would do.

Views and the hike is worth all the effort.

Was referred by my friend and colleague in my work place. Awesome hiking trail. water falls and river flowing side to the trail. Beautiful view of the lake surrounded by mountains. Hike with my daughter and and wife's family with a 2year old kid. It was fun.
