Revision as of 12:50, 12 October 2010


We will be going up the Garibaldi Lake in Garibaldi Park for an overnight trip. We will set up camp at Taylor Meadows, which is 7.5 km from the trail head with 900 meters elevation gain. This trip is beginner friendly but there is elevation gain. The trail is well made with lots of switch backs but it is a steady climb most of the way. No experience is needed, but proper gear and a general level of fitness will make your life easier!

There are various day hikes around the area and as a group we can decide what we would like to do. I hope to do Panorama Ridge and Black Tusk, one on saturday after setting up camp and one on sunday before we leave. Panorama Ridge is 5 km from the campsite with 630 meters elevation gain and beautiful views. The Black Tusk is 7 km from the campsite with 850 meters elevation and the option of a scramble to the top if you have a helmet!

  • Saturday: Leave Vancouver bright and early. Hike to Taylor Meadows and set up camp. Hike to the Black Tusk or Panorama Ridge. Return to camp and make dinner.
  • Sunday: Early birds go hiking. Return to cars and head back to Vancouver.


The pre-trip meeting will be on Wednesday, October 20th at 5 pm in the VOC clubroom in the basement of the SUB. We will organize food groups, make sure everyone has a ride and a tent to stay in, and talk about the trip in general. If you have questions before the meeting then go to the "trips" section of the "message board" on the VOC webpage.


  • Turn right off Hwy 99 just after you cross the Rubble Creek Bridge, 37 km north of Squamish or 19 km south of Whistler onto a paved road that leads 2.5 km to the Garibaldi Lake, Rubble Creek Trailhead parking lot. Allow an hour and a half of driving once you have picked up all your passengers to reach the turn off.
  • Each person must pay $5 overnight fee per person at the parking lot! Cash or credit card. If you are getting a ride you will also pay gas money (passengers in the VOC usually to pay for all the gas since the driver pays insurance and maintenance). Depending on how many people are in the car it should only be about $10-15.


Check out the gear lists on the wiki aswell: Gear lists
