Garibaldi Provincial Park is a favorite destination of outdoor...

Garibaldi Provincial Park is a favorite destination of outdoor enthusiasts: it offers a range of hiking opportunities from lush alpine meadows, wildlife viewing opportunities, alpine flowers blooming in lush meadows, and hikes ranging from a few hours to a few days using map and compass. Garibaldi Park has an interesting geological background as it was created by volcanic action which created the formation of many of the parks peaks; the Black Tusk, Price Mountain, The Table, Mount Garibaldi, the CinderCone and the Glacier Pikes just to name a few. Lava from Clinker Peak is responsible for the creation of The Barrier. Behind this natural dam 300 metre deep Garibaldi Lake was formed.

I have had this one on my list for a year now and was finally able to see it. WOW.. just wow. The trails are all very well maintained and easy to follow. There is not too much parking ( a few lots) but it can become extremely busy in the summer months so make sure you arrive early. The... More

If you're one for natural views, and a bit of a hike - this is the place for you, bar none. We set off from Garibaldi Park car park with our tents, food and water for the next couple of days. 6 hours leisurely paced, though consistently upwards, hike until we reached the rest point. At this rest point you... More

Expect to get your car broken into. All the cars were broken into when we returned to the parking lot. Found out after the fact that all the cars that were in the parking lot the night before were broken into as well. This is apparently typical at BC Provincial Parks. It's my last time hiking there.

It really is a beautiful place but you will meet many many people. Such is the way it goes in a place so wonderful and close to a major city. Suggestions -- go in Sept or early Oct, go Mon to Fri, avoid the weekend at all cost. Go for at least one night and hike to Panorama Ridge. You're... More

Spent 2 days in this awesome place, set up camp in Taylor Meadows and hiked Panorama Ridge during sunset, then returned back with headlamp. Next day we hiked Black Tusk, went down to Garibaldi Lake and back to camp to pack stuff and go home. We did 45kms together, was totally worth it! Trail are beautiful and views breathtaking.

Finally did this hike after seeing it in many photos. We went on a Friday morning and had reserved camping near the lake for two nights. We thought it was extremely crowded in the lot on the trail. The ranger said "just wait until the weekend". When we arrived at the lake we did find a camp spot and the... More

My husband and I went hiking here in July. For a first time hiker like me, this was so so hard!!! It was so hard that my husband had to take my back pack from me and carried it all the way up. It took us almost 4 hrs to reached the amazing, breath-taking view of the turqouise lake. It... More

My friends who hike often along with my boyfriend and I decided to do this hike while visiting Vancouver. I have never hiked before aside from short hikes at camp as a kid. This was not a beginner hike!! It took 3 hours and 45 mins to get to the lake. I recommend dressing in layers as the temperature dropped... More

It is definitely worth the uphill climb to see Lake Garibaldi! Turquoise water, white glacier, and majestic mountains. To add to the beauty, we saw a loon with its black and white plumage being highlighted by the water colour. We took the circle route that included Taylor Meadows before coming to the lake. The meadows were very pretty with the... More

I've been wanting to do this hike for a while, prepared my self for the uphill hike, but was a little more difficult than I thought. It took 7 hours in total to hike plus 1.5 hours of break. Of course the 9km uphill was worth the view. Bring agua, fruit and lunch. Absolutely beautiful.
