Hiking Garibaldi Lake

Garibaldi Lake is a stunning, turquoise lake that sits 1,450 m high, surrounded by snow-capped mountains, glaciers, alpine meadows and volcanic structures. Garibaldi Lake is one of the most scenic hikes around Vancouver.

As such, it's also one of the most crowded trails around during the summer. However, September is the perfect month for this hike once the school-year has begins as the crowds thin out.

The guide on the website has been updated with new video/photos and description. More details about Garibaldi Lake here: http://www.outdoorvancouver.ca/featured-trail-garibaldi-lake/
