Garibaldi Provincial Park BC
"Garibaldi Provincial Park BC" refers to Garibaldi Provincial Park in the southwest corner of the province of British Columbia.
The term "Garibaldi Provincial Park BC" is uncommon. We will, however, continue using it here in case, for whatever reason, you searched those specific words. But be aware you'll rarely find it labeled as such elsewhere. You'll see it as "Garibaldi Provincial Park," or simply "Garibaldi Park."
Comprising 194,650 ha (480,990 acres) in the heart of the Coast Mountains, much of Garibaldi Provincial Park BC is untracked wilderness: fearsome mountains, ponderous glaciers, ancient forests, ice-born rivers, and frigid lakes. Volcanism and glaciation of Biblical magnitude are responsible for the park's tumultuous topography.
In August 1907, three Vancouver mountaineers summitted the park's namesake peak: Mount Garibaldi. Summer climbing camps were soon established at Garibaldi Lake. The area was named a park reserve in 1920. Garibaldi Provincial Park was established in 1927.
The primary access to Garibaldi Provincial Park BC is via the Sea-to-Sky Highway, which links Vancouver, Squamish, Whistler, and Pemberton. The park is 70 km (43 mi) north of Vancouver.
Garibaldi Provincial Park BC has more than 90 km (56 mi) of established trails. As a result, the park offers extraordinary hiking opportunities, several of which are described in Done in a Day Whistler, The Ten Premier Hikes. Four of the trips in the book probe the park: Elfin Lakes, High Note / Musical Bumps, Panorama Ridge via Helm Creek, and Wedgemount Lake.
