Garibaldi Provincial Park is a favorite destination of outdoor enthusiasts: it offers a range of hiking opportunities from lush alpine meadows, wildlife viewing opportunities, alpine flowers blooming in lush meadows, and hikes ranging from a few hours to a few days using map and compass. Garibaldi Park has an interesting geological background as it was created by volcanic action which created the formation of many of the parks peaks; the Black Tusk, Price Mountain, The Table, Mount Garibaldi, the CinderCone and the Glacier Pikes just to name a few. Lava from Clinker Peak is responsible for the creation of The Barrier. Behind this natural dam 300 metre deep Garibaldi Lake was formed.

Make sure you are well prepared. We brought lots of food and water because we didn't know how long it would take us. It's about 20kms total. Melting snow made for lots of unwanted dips in the lake. Trail was well marked until you got...More

Although the turn-off from Highway 99 could be better indicated, the Rubble Creek car park was big enough​on a busy day. The trail up to the lake was well graded and maintained. Route indication was discrete and sufficient. Late it was harder to navigate but...More

It was a total of 20km hike and a bit difficult but the view at the destination is totally worth it.

The hike can be strenuous at times (the first five km are the hardest with the switchbacks) but the two small lakes and finally the huge turquoise Lake Garibaldi make it worth your time! The forest and views of the valley/mountains along the way are...More
