Garibaldi Lake
One of the most spectacular lakes in southwestern British Columbia, the turquoise coloured lake features a scenic glacier backdrop. The nine kilometre uphill hike is long and gruelling at times, but the reward makes the effort worthwhile. The best time to hike this trail is mid to late July when you can go through Taylor Meadows to see the colourful wildflowers in bloom before looping down to the lake. — Vancouver Trails
