Garibaldi Provincial Park

Take a daytrip to this glorious park to see stunning glaciers, a fascinating volcanic field and picturesque nature trails.

Garibaldi Provincial Park is known for its rows of snow-peaked mountains overlooking placid lakes and vast valleys. The park’s highlight is the Garibaldi Lake, which contains islands and on a clear day reflects the white peaks and lava walls of the surrounding landscape. Traverse the various hiking trails to encounter the gorgeous natural attractions at your own pace.

Climb one of the many rock formations that make the park famous. The park is a popular destination for rock climbers. Cycle along the Diamond Head Trail in the southwestern region of the park. Reach the Elfin Lakes for excellent mountain biking opportunities. Snowshoeing, skiing and hiking are also popular in the park. Swim in the northern lake within the park but resist taking the plunge in the southern lake, which is reserved for drinking water.

Capture photos of Mount Garibaldi, one of the most iconic peaks in British Columbia. In winter its snow-capped peak is one of the most photographed sites in the park. See the Black Tusk and other fascinating rock formations in the Garibaldi Lake volcanic field. With a surface height of 4,900 feet (1,500 meters) above sea level, the lake is nestled between the varied contours of the park. Admire the lava dams that encircle the turquoise water.

Make your way to Cheakamus Lake for canoeing or kayaking. Enjoy a picnic in the thick forest on the shore before embarking on one of the hiking trails, such as the 2.5-mile (4-kilometer) path to Singing Creek.

Take the 9-mile (14.5-kilometer) trail to Black Tusk Meadows to experience Helm Creek, a charming stream that feeds into the Cheakamus River. Marvel at the river’s spectacular waterfalls, rivers and the vistas of forests and mountains that surround you.

In winter, cross-country ski along the picturesque hiking trails. Stay at a camping site with views of the mountains. Fees apply for camping; however, reservations cannot be made so sites are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis

Garibaldi Provincial Park is about 44 miles (70 kilometers) north of Vancouver, between Squamish and Whistler. Access the park via the Sea to Sky Highway, with five entry points along the highway. Parking is available in lots throughout the park.
