Joffre Lakes is one of BC’s most beautiful and relatively accessible alpine lake hikes or runs. There are three lakes in all (Lower, Middle, and Upper Joffre), with Upper Joffre being by far the most picturesque.

I’ve actually never been there in the summer, but a group of us did decide to run it the first weekend of December including my friends Chloe, Shannon, and Joel. It took just over 2 hours and we had a great time playing in the fresh pow.
