    We rode the gondola up with a reservation to do the Via Ferrata. The ferrata was a great way to expand on our visit with a hike partway down the mountain, clipping our safety harnesses into the cables and climbing the iron rungs back up to the visitor deck. Our guide, Lorna, was fantastic, describing various aspects of the landscape and flora as we went. She had all of the gear necessary already laid out along with shoe spikes for the icy sections. That saved us having to bring our own gear.
    If you have climbed a moderate amount, you will find this easy. If you have never rock climbed, this is fun for the family as long as you can tolerate heights. At most we were 30m - 40m off the ground and always safely clipped in. Highly recommend.

    It takes about 5 minutes to walk from the parking lot to the first viewpoint. There are dry toilets at the entrance, and a few steps further inside, there are regular restrooms. In terms of lighting, it's best to visit in the afternoon when the sunlight shines directly on it, making it more beautiful. In the morning, it's more backlit. Climbing a few steps up the mountain will take you to the second viewpoint.

    The Squamish Chief Mountain trail offers a trilling &challenging adventure for hikers seeking a steep & difficult ascent. The use of ladders & chains in certain sections provides added support & excitement during the climb. Despite the demanding nature of the trail, the reward at the top is truly breathtaking. From the summit you will be treated to a stunning panoramic view of Howe Sound, creating a memorable experience. This 6km round trip presents 3 peaks waiting to be conquered, with wooden stairs aiding your journey along the way. Make sure to take a well deserved lunch break while soaking in the awe insiring surroundings.

    The view from the top is worth the 3 hour walk. It doesn't seem real, like something from a Bob Ross painting.

    Crystal blue water from the glaciers and small mammals, what more do you need.

    Beautiful place to stay. Big spacious sites giving plenty of privacy. The campsites are surrounded by forestry that you feel that you're the only person on the site. Choice of trails to suit everyone. The stroll around the lake in the evening is lovely which you can take swim in, showers beside the lake to freshen up afterwards then relax at one of the many picnic benches around. Definately would recommend and would also stay here again!

    It’s a nice ride right along the huge lake. The views are pretty great. I was going this way anyway so it was a real nice ride.

    I came on the Skylynx bus headed for the railway museum. The staff in the adventure centre offered me a map and directions. The Garibaldi cafe on the site also helped in replenishing my food stocks.

    I have visited this area many many times with my children and on my own since 2016 quite regularly and it always left us with great memories. The views of the mountains and the river passing by are definitely something to remember for. Great outdoor spot.

    Driving around Squamish just for a day when we stumbled on this beautiful place. Perfect find during a day trip to the North of Vancouver.
