I found it very easy to walk past - not very well sign posted and was very graffitied. Was OK I just wouldn't recommend. It's a broken up train in the trees.

We caught a number 2 bus from Whistler & got off at Cheakamus Crossing and then walked passed the Whistler Brewery to the train line. The walk to the train wreck only takes approximately 30 minutes depending how many stops to view the river you make. The forest is very interesting as it is totally natural with fallen trees and...

Easy hike along the train tracks from function junction along the beautiful river to see an incredible train wreck painted by great graffiti artists. Such beautiful lush forests surrounding it with what would have been an interesting bike track around it.

The hike to the train wreck is worth the trip itself! If you stick to the railway the walk is super quick, but if you duck off into the forest along the river bank you'll get beautiful views of the river as you walk a lovely, leisurely trail. A little tough to find if you don't know where you're going... More

A true work of art, the view of these train wrecks emerging from the wood is worth the 10-30min walk. It seems like you could also easily go down and have a dip in the river. Indications are easy to find on whistler hiatus' website. Take the 2.50$ bus #1 or 2 SOUTH bound from whistler and ask to be... More

Easy hike - more like a walk. Great hike for the whole family. Short and interesting enough to keep kids entertained. Great river views and the the "art" on the train wrecks change often. The only challenge is doing a little research ahead of time so you know where you are going - the trail isn't the well marked.

Really cute little,adventure to bring kids. They get so pumped to see the train. Its a easy walk to bring the grandparents as well. They love seeing the grandkids get so over joyed by the train. Just make sure you walk safe and watch your steps. To the punks who go to party, please keep it down a notch or... More

My family hiked along the trail. The trail was easy to moderate in difficulty; we had my young grandson in along in a harness. The pathetic wasn't well marked in some spots. The views were amazing and the graffiti art was very good.

Situated behind a market of food, the path leads to a train having gone off the rails at the end of the 50s. Completely full of graffiti, cars are not more than of the carcass of metal. All the route to go is there interesting except that there should be a little more bulletin boards to find itself there because... More
