A well-graded trail winds up through the forest, past the Barrier and Lesser Garibaldi Lake. Many bring gear to sleep at one of the Lake's beautiful campsites but it's also quite feasible to hike to the lake and back in a day.

Access: Turn right off Hwy 99 just after you cross the Rubble Creek bridge, 37 km north of Squamish or 19 km south of Whistler onto a paved road that leads 2.5 km to the Garibaldi Lake parking lot.
