“A shady trail through Garibaldi Provincial Park leads up to a stunning alpine lake with glacier and summit views!”— Vikram Sahney
The trail climbs steadily up the canyon but all in the shade. You encounter your first switchback at about mile 1.5. You progress through many more as you gain over 3,000 ft. up towards Taylor Meadows. Note that as of 7/31/2018, the Taylor Bridge is under construction and all hikers are routed to Taylor Meadows.
At Taylor Meadows, follow the signs to Garibaldi Lake (~2km). Views of the lake appear just before the trail descends to the shore. At the lake there are stunning views of the mountains and glaciers. Go for a swim... you earned it!
