Description: 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've hiked Garibaldi Lake 2x in the last month or so. There really are no words to describe the beauty. The first hike was on a rainy day and it was beautiful. The little bit of mist provided a magical ambiance that turned a rainy day into beauty. The 1st 6km is switchback after switchback and a good cardio workout.... More

Highlights: this hike, even if only to Garibaldi Lake, is worth the 10km of nearly constant steep grade. Also, once you arrive at the lake, the Black Tusk, Panorama Ridge, and other trails are available if you want to continue the hike. Only wish we had time and could have camped overnight to enjoy even better views!

Unbelievable hiking & camping in this area. Garibaldi Lake is incredibly beautiful! It's even more beautiful when seen from the top of Panorama Ridge. Makes for a roughly 33km day if you go down to the lake as well. With almost 5000 feet of elevation gain and loss it will definitely make you sore the next morning but it's all... More

So the first 6K, online, they tell you it is a "gradual" incline, which I guess, for a mountain, it is, but not what we were expecting! Once you get up to the junction, it does level out for a bit, but still a lot of up hill. Make sure you are prepared for this journey, and have some liquids... More

super long hiking, definitely longer than 9 km each way. Bring enough water, be prepared. The Garibaldi lake is beautiful, worth the effort.

We'd been advised by a few people that was a stunning location to visit...we weren't disappointed. Good trails and well marked. We'd asked at the Squamish outdoor store and the visitor centre for an update on weather on the track.. They reported sun at different levels! When we arrived at the car park we waited to check out what foot... More

this lake is about 90KM from Vancouver.it is about 8 KM hike with elevation change about 950 meters. I am not a hiker but I did it with my friends and took about 3.5 hours to get there and 3 hours to come back down. The turnoff at Highway #99 to parking lot is so small, paved road on the... More

It is a switch back climb to the lake, it is the mat beautiful colour when you arrive at the lake, to have the glacier as a back drop, how amazing. The water is cold and fresh. Then the hike down is hard on the knees, but still continue to to the hike because of the amazing vista upon arrival.

I still am in awe of this hike. At first you think why am I switchbacking up a hill with no view- but eventually once you get to the lake it IS TOTALLY WORTH IT. Some are saying the water is cold but I guess with the warm weather WE ALL SWAM :) GO GO GO !!

This is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The trails are wide and the scenery is beautiful. Grab some water and lunch in a back pack & don't forget bug spray & your camera with lots of memory and an extra battery! If you start your hike at Rubble Creek/Black Tusk parking lot. You will walk through the... More
