Tourism Whistler has announced Whistler’s top five scenic hikes. “Whistler’s natural beauty and well-maintained trails are remarkably inviting for those looking to hike off into some stunning vistas. Also, as fall begins, conditions are perfect with cooler temperatures and quieter trails.”

Whistler’s top five scenic hikes

  1. Wedgemount Lake Trail: “Our latest Whistler Insider Blog follows Feet Banks as he takes on the calf-burner that is the Wedgemount Lake Trail. Are you brave enough to take on this 1,200 m climb in just 6 kms?”
  2. Rainbow Lake Trail: “This 16km round trip affords hikers an enviable view of Rainbow Lake set against the distant Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. It’s a true Whistler Hiking Classic.”
  3. Whistler Valley Trail: “Who says you have to trek uphill to find the scenery? This Whistler Insider blog discovers 6 perfect spots on Whistler’s Valley Trail, which runs an easy distance from the Whistler Village.”
  4. Cheakamus Lake Hike: “The low-effort, high reward nature of this hike makes it a popular, 6 km stroll for those looking to take it easy. The reward, in this case, is the bright turquoise, glacier-fed lake.”
  5. Hiking the Whistler Alpine: “OK, we are cheating with this one as there are many alpine hikes, each with their own merits. The High Note Trail and Singing Pass, however, are definite front runners.”
