Want to get out of the city for the weekend, but rock party isn’t for you?

Elfin Lakes are located within Garibaldi Park near Squamish. Accessing the Lakes requires a 3-4 hour hike on a steeper, but well-built trail.

Info on the Diamondhead area can be found HERE

Detailed trail info can be found HERE

The Plan:

-Pre-trip (Wed Sept 27th 6:00 pm @ Clubroom):

  • We will make sure you have all the required equipment and are organized in a carpool/tent group.

-Day 1 (Sat Sept 30th):

  • We will depart from the trailhead at 9:00 am, hike to Elfin Lakes (3-4 h), then continue to either Little Diamond Head or Opal Cone.

-Day 2:

  • After breakfast, we will head back down to the trailhead and return to Vancouver.

Things you should know:

  • This trip is considered beginner friendly. No backpacking or camping experience is required, just lots of stoke!
  • Tenting is encouraged (more fun!), but there is also a large hut at Elfin.
  • Reservations need to be made for both the tent pads and the hut. After tent groups are determined, you must book your spots HERE.
  • The VOC has boots, sleeping pads and backpacks for rent with deposit, but NOT tents. MEC offers rentals HERE.
