Description:

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

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.

The hike into garibaldi lake! - If you are hiking with backpacking gear it will be a slow and steady walk up the massive hill at the beginning! What feels like an eternity (30-60 mins pace dependant) it slowly starts to not be as steep! (don't let this put you off, it's worth it)! You come across 2 Smaller and... More

We hiked to Garibaldi in late June 2016 and were rewarded with incredible views. Here are a few tips from a beginning hiker: - allow for plenty of time. We started the hike a bit after 3 which put us on a bit of a time crunch to ensure we could finish a round trip 18 km prior to sunset.... More

You can also camp here @garibaldi lake and there are other grounds and places you can camp as well. It took us 6 hours of hiking back and forth but it was... More

We hiked up to Garibaldi Lake as a day hike. It is a steady uphill trek for the first 6km and then levels off a bit but still goes uphill. We were there in early June and only the last part of the trail near the lake had patches of snow. When we got to the lake we were rewarded... More

My adult boys had so much fun using their alpine touring ski equipment here this past Sunday when it was sunny. it was hard work to climb the hill but they loved every minute in the park. Driving up the mostly one lane road wasn't easy with the snow and mud and you needed snow chains to get all the... More

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.
