Was unsure of doing the hike especially in 1 day but if you are in shape totally manageable. Started 945am and finished before 5. We stopped for many pictures and a picnic along the way as well. The chute leading up to the very very...More

Done in 1 day, with 4 breaks, and a detour to the Garibaldi Lake. 10 first Kms are ok, but the end is very tricky, especially when it's cloudy and cold. Lot of snow even in late July, so get ready. You must climb up...More

This is a great day hike, you are constantly surrounded by beautiful views. The snow capped mountain are majestic and the lakes are beautiful as the sun glistens down on them. The climb to the summit of the tusk requires one to be careful, it...More

We set up camp at Garibaldi Lake and used that as our base to do both this hike and Panorama Ridge. The trail to Garibaldi is quite one-note and a steady climb, but so worth it. We loved the hike from the lake to the...More

Great day hike. Basic hiking rules apply: prepare for four season weather regardless of the weather report, solid hiking shoes, and a good hiking buddy! The path is extremely easy, with great elevation gains all the way to the base of the black tusk. Nothing...More

This was the most thrilling hike I have ever experienced in British Columbia! Frought with many changes in terrain and expanding expectations. However, I made the mistake of walking into the park with my 8 pound Yorkshire Terrier, Buddy. Half way up the ridge, we...More

Great views and aqua blue lakes. Even in July, there was snow cover, so make sure you bring adequate footwear and clothing. If you are adventurous enough, try hiking to Panorama Ridge and Black Tusk in one day.

Such a scenic hike, I recommend you camp and split the hike over 2 days. Garibaldi lake is also beautiful, go for a swim to cool off. The hike to the very top of Black tusk gets quite steep and rocky but the trails leading...More
