I think this might have been the most beautiful place I have ever seen. I did this hike yesterday and it took about 5 hours round trip. The first 7km are a nice steady uphill climb but it is all worth it. The trail is well maintained and the trail head is easy to find. Go early if you plan on doing it just for the day so you have time to go around the lake.

Gradually ascending trail, good to go with friends
Nice view at the top and definitely recommend to camp a night to reach higher up!

Montée interminable dans les bois mais régulière sur un très bon sentier. La vue du lac récompense les efforts.
Il faudrait camper au bord du lac pour continuer le lendemain sur panorama ridge, ce que nous n'avons pas pu faire...

Just hiked this today (8/21/2017). Probably the most beautiful hike I've done. The first 4km are challenging as it is completely inclined. after the fork to taylor meadows and garibaldi, it gets easier. if you choose to camp, just know that you have to hike 7km from the parking lot to the camp site. the lake is beautiful and the view points are unbeatable.

One of my favourite lakes in the area! Definitely very busy during weekends and summer. The trail is not technical and gradual sloping for the first 6km, until you reach the barrier lookout (highly recommend this 100m detour). For the next 3km it's relatively flat and passes two lakes before reaching garibaldi lake. Cross the bridge and walk along the side of the water until you reach the camping cooking shelters and picnic tables along the trail beside the water. Gorgeous views and a perfect places for a cold swim and snacks.
