Garibaldi Provincial Park
Squamish is also a starting point for visits to the southern part of the 1950 sq. km (750 sq. mi.) Garibaldi Provincial Park, including a trip to one of the most popular areas - Diamond Head. One or two alpine refuges and a few basic campsites are provided in this magnificent and still largely untouched mountain wilderness centered on the majestic, glacier-clad Mt Garibaldi (2678 m (8790 ft)).Signs of relatively recent volcanic activity abound in the park, many of the peaks, especially in the vicinity of Garibaldi Lake, being volcanic in origin.
