Length: 12.5 mi • Est. 6 h 51 m
Note: Garibaldi Provincial Park is now open - visitors must reserve a permit before arriving at the park. Elfin Lakes Shelter is currently closed due to COVID-19. For more information, please see http://bcparks.ca/explore/parkpgs/garibaldi/ This hike could be done as a day hike or an overnighter. 35 tent pads and a large backcountry hut can be found beside Elfin Lakes. Backcountry reservations are required if you plan on spending the night. It costs extra to stay in the hut if you don't have a tent. The hut is a two story building with kitchen and common area on the ground floor and bunk beds on the top floor (no privacy). The hike starts with six kms of uphill that is fairly tough going if you are carrying your gear. Once you've battled past that you break out onto a gorgeous ridge on Round Mt. that takes you to Elfin Lakes. From this ridge you get a great view of the Mt. Garibaldi's peak as well as the Tantalus Mountain Range. Timing is everything with this hike because the snow stays around well into the spring. July thru September is the best time if you're hoping to avoid snow. There is also a small shelter in Red Heather Meadows on the way up to the lakes, which is used as a warming hut during the winter months. Show more

Length: 7.8 mi • Est. 6 h 9 m
With steep and rocky portions leading to spectacular glacial views, Wedgemount Lake is not a hike to underestimate. Fairly continuous uphill with a solid scramble towards the end. The scrabble is just as challenging on the way down as it is going up. Note: Spikes and poles highly recommended in snow conditions. Bring an extra layer as the temperature can drop quickly at the top. Show more
