Hike 19km with 904m elevation to a stunning turquoise lake!
A slight yet consistent incline up sharp switchbacks to an impressively large glacier-fed alpine lake sitting in a deep basin. Hike past the Barrier lookout, a momentus rockwall of crumbling lava that supports Garibaldi Lake.
The trail circles the Barrier Basin through changing vegetation, with rhododendron and lupine growing next to the path until reaching the powder-blue waters of Lesser Lake, to eventually marvel at the surreal green waters popping out against glaciated peaks beyond.
