Default garbaldi to whistler

Last summer i hiked the Black Tusk in Garibaldi. I've heard that there is a hike that goes from Taylor Meadows to Whistler but I'm not quite sure where it goes through. I've heard about the Singing pass but am not sure about that either. If anyone has a mapr (preferably topographical) of the area, that would be great.

You continue down the trail from Black Tusk, through Cinder Flats, and down the Helm Creak Trail to the Cheakamous Lake trail. It's another 1.5 km to the trailhead parking lot and another 10 km from there to Whistler Village. I believe I once saw a rough trail on a map which climbed from the side of Cheakamous Lake to Singing Pass but it's no longer marked any of the new maps and tit must be a very steep trail.

See you on the mountain!

I did Black Tusk last year and this year want to do the route you described. A ranger I talked to suggested going North to South by starting with the Cheakamous Lake Trail, Helm Creek, Cinder flats etc.

Given this route, we would camp 2 nights - the second night at Taylor Meadows or the Lake. Is there a campsite along the Helm Creek Trail for the first night <img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle>

Thanks.

There is a small Helm Creek Campsite near Cinder Flats but it's first come, first served for spots. You don't have to pay for this one like you do at Garibaldi Lake or Taylor Meadows. Of course there is always stealth camping.

See you on the mountain!
