Garibaldi Park Hiking Traverse - Whistler to Squamish

Sunset Under Helm Peak

This route is an absolute classic! A backpacking traverse that travels mostly in the alpine and tree line between Whistler and Squamish.  As an instructor at Capilano University I have guided this route 16 times teaching backpacking skills. It flanks iconic landmarks like Black Tusk and Mt. Garibaldi on ridges and endless meadows. Lakes, tarns and streams surround you everywhere. Encounters with bear, wolverines, mountain goats, and the sounds of wolves howling through the night have been common during past trips.    

The trips meeting point and traverse start is at Cheakamus Lake by Whistler Village. The route is predominantly off trail going by Corrie Lake and Panorama Ridge before dropping down to the shores of Garibaldi Lake.  After that we disappear through 32,000 year old lava flows on a rough trail that leads over Price Mountain to descend down onto the trail less Warren Glacier Flats. The route finishes by going over the scenic alpine meadows of Brohm Ridge to a long drop into the Squamish Valley. 

Strong hiking fitness required.                 

Cost: $1200
