Embrace the wilderness at Garibaldi Provincial Park, a pristine alpine park that features a jagged glacier-capped mountain vista, a scenic lake, and a wide array of plant and animal life. Douglas firs, western red cedar, and western hemlock forests dot the grounds. Go for a leisurely trek through the canopied park, paying special attention to the glacial mountain vantage point, or the lush greenery surrounding Garibaldi Lake. These treks can be quite challenging, particularly in the winter months, so approach with caution if fitness or walking ability are a concern.

  • Great hike and views! The last lake has the best views and fairly unadulterated. I was surprised that many hikers started around 2 pm and didn’t feel they were camping either. For a moderate hikers...

  • This park is worth the visit. The views from Panorama Ridge and Black Tusk are unrivaled in the area. You get Lake Louise views and colour with half the tourists and less development.

  • I hiked to the river and my knees felt like they were going to crack and pop out of their socket going down because it is steep. It's now the next day and I'm still really having trouble walking and I've never had knee, leg or health problems :( Going up was easier than going down, and it's usually the opposite for me. I love hiking but just be prepared for this and don't underestimate this hike, it is a beast. I'm concerned how long it will take to recover from this :( I was fine doing Joffre Lake all the way to the top, it's much easier compared to this one.
  • Such a beautiful hike and view! Went on quite a rainy day but despite that, our hike was about 8hrs round trip, 5hrs to the top and a 3hr descent. As someone that hikes like 5 times a year, this was doable but make sure to go early to so you're not heading down when the sun sets. It wasn't easy but it definitely is worth the views. Bring a lunch, snacks, water, music and a positive attitude. When we got to the end, I couldn't believe how blue the water was, and for reference I went end of September.
