Really enjoyed this short hike to the train wreck. Awesome river with waterfalls also some really nice giant old trees. The train wreck covered in paintings,words also doubles as a biking course with ramps. It's a pretty cool spot. I recommend this hike.

eerie and interesting at the same time. There will always be a local to give you their version of the story ,but an excellent real example of a tragic event turned historic.

We hiked down from the pullout on Hwy 99. Took about 10 minutes but we didn't really know where we were going. Suddenly out of the trees you spot the looming train cars. A closer look shows some great graffiti art work and various bike jumps in, on and around the train cars. A recommended stop when you are in... More

This is a great walk, beautiful scenery and interesting destination. As it is illegal to walk along the train tracks it is it is very difficult to find, Needs better signposting.

It's not easy to find this train graveyard because there are very few markers on the "trail." Once we found the spot, it felt unimpressive. With so many amazing sights in Whistler, you can find a better use of your time.

This was a worthwhile hike. The graffiti on the train cars is amazing. There is some beautiful scenery on the walk along the trail to the wreck. Pay attention to the trail markers so that you don't miss it.

Just did this easy hike yesterday. Took two teenage boys. I would absolutely recommend it. Although suitable hike for most, might be a little long/boring for the really young. Make sure you review directions and write them down and take them with you. Easy if you follow directions. There were also many people on the trail to ask for help.... More

A great hike if you know where you're going, with beautiful river scenery along the way and the wrecked cars are such a cool and surreal sight at the end. Not much change in elevation but wear good shoes as there are rocks and lots of tree roots...saw people in flip flops, that's just asking for disaster. Kids and dogs... More

Friends knew of this, so took us. The trail is not marked, so you have to know where to go as it weaves in and out of the brush. The hike is pretty level, so beginners could easily do it and the end sight of the old wrecked rail cars are quite cool. I'm told the graffiti changes frequently, so... More
