General Information

This is a beginner friendly trip, overnight backpacking into Garibaldi Park. The hike into Garibaldi Lake from the trailhead is approximately 9 km with a fair bit of elevation gain, where we will set up camp. The hike from Garibaldi Lake to Panorama Ridge is another 7.5 km one way.

This is a relatively easy overnight trip, but we will be out of cell service and easy access to Tim Hortons. If you're new to backpacking, this trip will be a good ease into it, and if you're just new to Vancouver area, you can come and see what everyone keeps talking about when they say it's the most beautiful area in the world.

  • Saturday October 17: Leave Vancouver bright and early. Hike into Garibaldi Lake campground on the Barrier Trail, eating lunch on the way. Set up camp at Garibaldi Lake. Hike to Panorama Ridge and return to Garibaldi Lake by dark.
  • Sunday October 18: Options to hike in Garibaldi Park more this day, or leave early to return to Vancouver.

How much does it cost?

The fee for camping in Garibaldi Park is $5 a night per person. Expect to pay your driver $10 for gas, though this depends on the driver.
