Description

This is a well-traveled trail and for good reason. It offers a well-maintained, shaded trail gaining significant altitude as it meanders up to Garabaldi Lake, a great swimming location with stunning views.

Head out of the parking lot past the well-marked trailhead kiosk (with map and trail info) and pit toilets. The trail starts out and remains under tree cover, climbing steadily for the majority of the way.

All junctions are well marked.
