The hike is a strenuous approx. three miles uphill climb, but the trail is well maintained. The two lakes at the top are stunning, and a real reward for all the hard work. Keep going up to the third lake because it isn't much further...More

Only had time to visit Lower Joffre lake but it was beautiful. Next time I visit BC I plan on taking more time and hike all 3 lakes.

It is easy to see how this trail can be busy, seeing as it is so accessible (parking is only just off Duffy Lake road) and because of the stunning scenes that you experience. The guidelines seem to be generous with suggested hiking times... we...More

Response from Jennifer E | Reviewed this property |
I too am very afraid of heights and didn't have any issues on this hike. I don't recall there being any big dropoffs that made me nervous (those are the worst for me!!). It is definitely an uphill climb, but it is totally... More
