Mount Garibaldi, within Garibaldi Provincial Park, soars to 8,786 feet (2,678 meters) and serves as the park’s centerpiece. The network of trails here includes a 7.5-mile (12-kilometer) hike to Elfin Lakes, just north of Squamish, at the park’s southern boundary. Whether you enjoy this trail on an overnight trip or a day hike; you’ll be rewarded with magnificent views of the peaks.
Closer to Whistler, the Cheakamus Lake and Singing Pass areas are home to hikes that explore the rugged coastal mountain landscapes. Ambitious hikers who want to put in a long day, rather than an overnight, can ride Whistler’s Gondola and Peak Chair to the summit of Whistler Mountain and access the Singing Pass trail via an alpine route before descending along Fitzsimmons Creek to Whistler Village. Less active visitors can enjoy a scenic flight tour that offers a bird’s-eye view of this impressive landscape.
