Mt Garibaldi Hike in British Columbia – Worth the Trek

Mt Garibaldi Hike in British Columbia, Canada

Garibaldi Park is a wilderness area located a little under 2 hours north of Vancouver, and quite close to Squamish, along the stunning Sea to Sky Highway in British Columbia. One of the best hikes within this park is the hike to the summit of Mt. Garibaldi. It’s an extremely long day hike with a good bit of elevation gain that rewards you with some of the best views in the world. The hike is roughly 20 miles total, but you can break it into multiple days by camping at the lake you encounter halfway through. The trail is easy-to-follow, but you do gain a bit of elevation. We gained over 6,000 feet during the first 10 miles. If you’re able to do it, I think the views are well worth the grueling hike…
