With more that 1100 meters of elevation gain within just 7km Wedgemount Lake is one of the most difficult hikes in Garibaldi Park.
That said, adventurers are always thankful they made the trip and are absolutely amazed at the sights they see of massive glaciers, turquoise lakes, and valley views. It is possible to walk around the edges of the glacier too. You will be proud to show off the photos you take of this area! If you're lucky, you may even meet a resident marmot.
