We did this hike on Labor Day. There are parking lots at the trailhead, but full by the time we arrived at 1030am. We parked along the right side of the road where other cars parked and there’s lots of parking there, but a bit...More

A really worthwhile hike in the Park to the lake. The lake is beautiful and birds feed from your hand! It was muddy close to the lake and apparently during a large part of the year the lake access is closed due to snow.

We hiked to Panorama Ridge, the lake and then back to the car. It was 21 miles and I was glad that I had trained for it. The views were stunning The water temperature was perfect for a swim. HOWEVER THE BUGS WERE CRAZY BAD!!!

Second time doing hiking and overnight camping at Lake Garibaldi. A 3-4 hour hike up the mountain, depending on your pace, on a very good trail, leads you to the most amazing glacial lake in very interesting volcanic terrain. Campsites with communal outhouses (well maintained)...More

I did this hike on Thursday, July 12, 2018---it was unforgettable! The hike up was a moderate to strenuous climb. There are kilometer markers as you go up so that you know exactly how far you have gone, a very well-marked trail (Canada trails seem...More

We hiked Garibaldi Lake trail on July 5, 2018 (Thursday). We rented a car from Vancouver and drove the 1h 15m to Garibaldi Lake Trailhead. The trail itself was not too busy - I'm thinking it was because we went on a Thursday. You were...More

Very beautiful long hike, very well maintained and the lake is magnificent! We went there at the end of June. We made a small detour until up to Black Tusk junction where we had to walk in the snow for about a mile.
