Hiking and mountain biking are incredibly popular pursuits in the Pemberton Valley.
So much so that the Pemberton Valley Trail Association has divided the region into five core areas to accommodate both pursuits: Pemberton Valley, One Mile Lake, Mackenzie, Mosquito South and Mosquito North.
Hiking in Provincial Parks
These core areas offer trails for every ability level but because several hiking trails are shared with bikers and horses, many hikers head for the provincial parks, especially Joffre Lake Provincial Park and Nairn Falls Provincial Park where even short hikes can be immensely rewarding.
Joffre Lakes (all levels)
Located 24km/15mi north of Mt Currie, above Lillooet Lake, it's a short 250m/273yd walk from the parking lot to first of the three Joffre lakes; a stiff 4km/2.5mi hike to Middle Joffre Lake and a challenging ascent for another 1.5km/.9mi to Upper Joffre.
