DIRECTIONS: Take Hwy #1. Drive West towards Horseshoe Bay. Take sea-to-sky Hwy to Squamish. It is about 65Km drive. Turn right on Mamquam Road where there is Canadian Tires on north-east corner. Drive about 1.7Km. The road becomes a gravel road. It is well graded with some occasional post holes. Most 2WD cars can handle it without a problem. Drive on this gravel road for 7.8Km. Look then for a turn-off on the left side with a big Garibaldi Park Rd sign. It is likely that you can drive to that turn off in Winter as the altitude there is 600m. Garibaldi Park Road is another 4.7Km to the parking and is a rougher road. It is somehow hard on 2WD but still doable. In winter, you should have chains for the tires. The snow situation can sometimes be even tough on 4x4 vehicles with chains or snowtires. There is a small overflow parking on the side at 2.7Km from the beginning of Garibaldi Park Road which can park and walk the 2Km to the trail head. The altitude at the parking lot is 950m. create
