Upper Joffre Lakes ,British Columbia, Canada

Address -: Upper Joffre Lakes ,Joffre Lakes Trail, Mount Currie, Pemberton, British Columbia, Canada

Three glacier-fed lakes are located in the park: Lower, Middle and Upper Joffre Lakes. The rock flour in the water reflects blue and green waves, and gives the lakes a turquoise colour. Joffre Lakes is a popular destination for hikers in the summer and mountain climbers in the winter due to its scenic lakes, glaciers and challenging peaks. In recent years the park's popularity has increased dramatically, creating controversy due to the volume of litter in the park and drivers parking dangerously on the adjacent provincial highway.

At the Pemberton Junction (Petro Canada gas station) follow the signs that take you bearing right, towards Mount Currie. After about 7 km, you will turn right on Duffey Lake Road. Once on Duffey Lake Road, you will switchback up the paved road for about 21 km before seeing the signs for the Joffre Lakes Provincial Park parking lot. The trail starts right from parking lot.
The lower lake is located off of the main trail, and is a 5-minute walk on flat terrain from the trailhead.

Hikers pass through a Moraine about 1.5 km into the trail. Trail users are then met by a waterfall located a short distance up the trail from the middle lake.
