Garibaldi Provincial Park

Search Visit British Columbia

Located in southwestern British Columbia, it's one of the most frequently visited provincial parks. Located near Vancouver and Whistler, the 480,000 acre park features volcanic peaks, alpine meadows and remote lakes. Bear sightings are not uncommon. The three main areas of the park are Black Tusk, Diamond Head and Cheakamus Lake. An average annual snowfall of about 65 feet occurs in the Diamond Head area, making it popular with skiers. One of the popular summer hikes entails trekking up to Garibaldi Lake, camping overnight and climbing Black Tusk the next day. It's highest point is 2,315 m (7,595 ft), and the last hundred metres are rocky steep and narrow, so beginners are advised to use rope for this section.

This is just one of hundreds of British Columbia Provincial Parks. It is reached from Vancouver by the Sea to Sky Highway.
