One of my fav long trails, the views are amazing, and you will see quite a variation - bushes, forest, lake, meadows, peaks, rocky surfaces... Really enjoyed! Start early as it’s very busy trail, and go down to Garibaldi lake to refresh yourself in ice cold water.

Was about 18” or so of fairly fresh snow in areas past the huts as you break into the open area. We had to break trail from about 5klm which was tiring. Due to limited daylight we decided to stop about 1.5 klm from the end of the Panorama Ridge. We settled on a ridge with nice views of the Tusk and surrounding area. People (and there were very very few) that did follow us had a much smoother trail. The weather was great which made this trip very rewarding albeit exhausting. Microspikes and snowshoes required. The 8 klms of trail to the open area was dry for about 4.5 klm and then icy/ snow. I uploaded a few images.

beautiful trail! we brought snowshoes and definitely had to use them once we got higher up. snow was above our knees at points. we only went to the viewpoint. we could hear cracks of snow echoing and were worried about avalanches (no idea of this is valid or if avalanches are common in this area but it felt scary!). but overall we had great weather and great views!

Good for rainy days. Up hill all the way but only three stepper sections. The rest is an undulating, back and forth, gradually increasing ascent. There are 3 view points for the falls. One right next to it so you go off to the right when you arrive, another two over to the left of the falls. The hike is usually wet to have proper footwear. Its getting muddy this time of year as well.

Started off at 7:30am. Temp was around 6 degree at base. Damp but no rain. We set a pretty quick pace. You take the crooked falls route up until then end pretty much. 300m from the falls you'll see a sign for siguard peak. The peak route is very well marked. Didnt stop much. Few times for water. You have to scramble at a few spots but nothing crazy. Be prepared for snow at around 1300m. With the roots and rock it gets slippy so take your time. Put on spikes around 1400m. Took us 3.5 hours to get to 1500m. After this mark the snow gets deep. We only had spikes and it was super hard going. 100% you need snowshoes now. We made it up to 1700m but the cloud level meant we could see not view so headed back to 1600m for food and photos. Probably one of the quickest hikes for descending. Due to the soft ground we came back down to the crooked falls crossing within 2 hours, and so did that detour before heading for the car. Go back to the car around 3:30pm. People down play alot on hikes so ill be frank. Im in very good shape, hike wise. The end section in the snow was very tough going, but saying that i didnt have snowshoes. The incline from crooked falls to the peak is relentless. Hard steep sections that burn the legs. Be prepared to sweat. That aside the top is amazing and you get a good few spots where the landscape opens up. Well worth it.

Hiked this Nov 19 on a very sunny day and there was snow at 1400M approaching Taylor Meadows. We hiked to Black Tusk Meadows and turned around before the junction of Garibaldi Lake/ Black Tusk trails merge to make it back before sunset. It is very snowy and icy after 1400M, we used micro spikes and crampons which were very useful and made the hike much more enjoyable. The trail was in good condition until it was very snowy in the meadow but you could see the trail because of previous hikers during the day. There were backcountry skiers returning from skiing the face of the Tusk and said it was very windy. It is very cold on top but manageable. No bears seen. Overall very fun day, beautiful weather.

It’s a intense hike, but worth every bit of sweat.

Hiked on Nov 14/2019. Snow started at the 6km mark where the trail splits to Garibaldi Lake and Taylor Meadows. A bit of path finding required during the final ascent up to the ridge. Any new snow the next few days might obscure the trail entirely.

Hiked on Nov 10 2019. Trailhead is easily accessible. No signs of snow until Taylor Meadows. After which, there are intermittent patches of snow and mud till I got to the Helm Pass. From there, it was snow all the way to the top. But the trail was packed and not really icy at the steep sections. I never had to take out my microspikes. Blue skies and views were incredible! The are “bear in area” signs after the 6km junction but the trail is open. Check the bc parks website before going and be bear aware. Happy hiking :)

1er trail en BC, il a fallu reprendre son souffle plusieurs fois mais la vue sur les cacades en vaut la peine, beaux points de vue sur Squamish valley. Que vous soyez un bon randonneur ou amateur, je conseille de le faire à son rythme.

Oct 27. Great hike up Sigurd Peak today. The trail between the last junction and first lookout is in great shape now, thanks to the kind souls who carried up saws, cleaned up the trail and re-flagged it. It was a mess last year in June #deadfallcentral. Thanks to their efforts, a supportive raincrust and a bootpack all the way to the summit, it was an easy cruise for us. 4.5 hours car to peak at relaxed pace. Continuous snow started around 1600m, we brought crampons and ice axe but didn’t use either. Extremely well marked trail.

Have done this 4 years ago. A must do for all experienced hikers. Now back for a rerun, but could not do it: Trail does not go further than lowest point to the lake/camp grounds. Upwards to Black Tusk and the ridge the trails are closed because of a black bear which is defensive to intruders to its habitat. Better go to the visitors center in Whistler for advice on current situation before doing this hike.

Did this hike on October 10th, trail was open***** Absolutely beautiful hike that should be on everyone’s bucket list of hikes. Rather moderate up until the last 2km, which is a steep scramble over a rock slide. Give yourself plenty of time to do this hike as i almost got stuck hiking in the dark. Took my time and made up back to the parking lot after 11 hours of hiking. Although the description says 28km, i clocked 32km. Would highly recommend this hike to anyone with moderate hiking experience and proper footwear!!

The description wasn’t kidding about bushwhacking. I’ve hiked overgrown trails before but this truly didn’t have any trail. Just ribbons in the bushes. Would have loved to have seen the glacier, but ended up taking a different unnamed trail In the area which was great and lead to a incredible cool lake.

In many ways this is a quintessential Coast Mountain hike - tons of elevation gain, super steep, rooty and rocky, and fantastic views from the summit. What makes this hike stand out is the fun alpine ramble as you approach the peak and the lack of people on the trail - we didn't see anyone else on a nice weather weekend! The trail is INCREDIBLY well marked and a little treacherous at times. It's not for the faint of heart! There was a light dusting of snow about 100 m below the summit. It took me 4.5 hours up from car to summit moving at a steady, moderate pace with few breaks and 3.5 hours down.
