Above is a good web page to describe the Hike to Black Tusk.
This hike is for above average to intermediate hikers. There is alot of VERTICAL hiking so be prepared. This is NOT a beginner hike. The first 7km is switch backs and climbing vertically.
I hiked this mountain last year all in 1 day. It took 9 hours go to hike to the base of Black Tusk and then we came down the mountain and went to Garibaldi Lake for a swim. We had lunch at the base. We will take breaks along the way.
This is one of the most pretties views you will see in a hike.
