Taylor Meadows is a great lunch break on the way up to Black Tusk or on its own as an overnight destination in Garibaldi Provincial Park. Offering stunning views of Panorama Ridge and Black Tusk, the campsite offers many backcountry amenities like raised tent pads, large cooking shelter including tables, nearby streams for water and several clean and well kept outhouses.
To get to Taylor Meadows, drive north from Squamish for approximately 30 km after the last set of lights and turn right onto a logging road (keep driving until you come to the parking lot, map and trail head).
The hike is moderately difficult with it being a steady climb from the parking lot to the meadows (7.5 km).
Highlights include access to Black Tusk, stunning mountain views, Garibaldi lake and great sub-alpine hiking in the meadows.
