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. « less

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

This is a beautiful place to be. Nature at it's best. Unfortunately it spoiled by the urbanites that have no clue as to what nature is. Starting from the trail in you will find an array of coffee cups and drink bottles left at the bottom of the various park signs as if God himself is going to come down... More

I thought I've been to some of the most beautiful places in North America, but apparently I was wrong! The highway (99) leading into the park was one of the most beautiful highways I've ever seen! With the lake on the left and the high, steep mountains on the right creates a scenic escape from the hustle and bustle of... More

My husband & I challenged ourselves to do a hike through the Garibaldi forest to the lake and it was well worth the sore muscles on those inclines. Gorgeous & lush, vibrant green hues everywhere and the tallest trees we've ever seen. You'll love breathing in the clean, fresh crisp air and the Garibaldi lake is stunning! The hike is... More
