Late September and my daughter and I blitzed up to Garibaldi Lake and onto Mount Price which sits on the south side of the lake. A 30 km wearying trip offset by an absolutely stellar weather day. The views from the top of the mountain...More

The best hike so far! There are a lot of parking, and the condition of the trail is super good. Almost only uphill on your way to the top. When you finally make it to the top, it’ll be totally worth it. The lake is...More

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

Did the Panorama Ridge hike (combined with stopping at Garibaldi Lake on the way down), in a single day. It's definitely doable if you're in decent shape. The trail is well marked and easy to follow. It's tiring but if you keep with it you'll...More

Panorama Ridge. The first 7.5km to taylor meadows or garibaldi lake (1.5km farther) are very difficult! Especially with a 50lb backpack. 25+ switchbacks along a very mediocre boring ascent. The hike to Panorama Ridge starts off with a slow ascent mostly flat, again not that...More
