There are five park access and entrance points located along the Sea to Sky Highway. Each entrance provides access to hiking trails with backcountry camping opportunities. All access points are open in winter for backcountry skiing, but only the Diamond Head access road is plowed. All camp sites are first-come, first-served.
Diamond Head This southern most entrance provides hiking or skiing access to the area south of Mount Garibaldi. A cooking hut and winter-only camping area are located in Red Heather Meadows, about 5 kilometres (3 mi) from the parking lot. An overnight shelter and campground are located 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) from the parking lot at Elfin Lakes.
Black Tusk/Garibaldi Lake The second entrance is located approximately half way between Squamish and Whistler. Hiking trails provide access to Garibaldi Lake, the Black Tusk, and Panorama Ridge. A trail also connects to the Cheakamus Lake area further north. Two camping areas provide sites for 90 tents.
Singing Pass The Singing Pass area is located to the east of Whistler Mountain. The area can be accessed by a trail which follows the Fitzsimmons Creek, between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. The area can also be accessed from the top of Whistler mountain via an alpine route. Camping is permitted at Russet Lake.
Wedgemount Lake The most northern entrance is via a deactivated forest service road. The road is unmaintained and is recommended for 4x4 vehicles only. Wedgemount Lake is accessed via a hiking trail. Camping is permitted around the lake.

Famous quotes containing the word access:
“In the greatest confusion there is still an open channel to the soul. It may be difficult to find because by midlife it is overgrown, and some of the wildest thickets that surround it grow out of what we describe as our education. But the channel is always there, and it is our business to keep it open, to have access to the deepest part of ourselves.”
—Saul Bellow (b. 1915)
