Follow the train tracks from Function Junction (away from Whistler village) for about 500m and you will stumble across this gem. Graffiti covered carriages are sprawled across the forested area, creating unique photo ops at every turn.

Great little hike along the Cheakamus River south of Function in Whistler. Round trip is about 45 mins. Take your time though and check out some of the views.

We were heading home after a weekend cycling trip and decided to do this hike to see one more think before we left the Whistler area. This is an easy hike into a surprisingly beautiful walk along beside the Cheakamus River. The day we walked the river was roaring along with spring run off and was majestically powerful. Once you...

An easy walk though some scrambling up rocks and down steep wooded areas. Also need to be aware you have to walk along or next to the railway line which does have trains coming along although only once or twice a day. The actual wreck, not signposted so need to go with someone in the know, is fascinating and worth... More

Just a short 10-15 minute hike from the sea-to-sky hwy to amazing art in an awe inspiring natural setting. The old (and extremely damaged) train cars have been turned into a gallery of bright and cheery graffiti. Formerly a bike park, most of the wooden bike ramps have been destroyed by the rapid decay only a rainforest can provide. Many... More

Something we were looking forward to. Walked the track from Function Junction. There are lots of tracks down to the river and through the trees. Great views of the river. There is some graffiti on the sleepers with an arrow into the woods on how to get to the wreck, thanks, not an easy place to find in the trees.... More

The train wreck was recommended to me by a friend and i have now taken 3 friends visiting to see it as well. A beautiful walk through Function, along the tracks. The river flowing fast beside you. Once you find the wreck is a beautiful walk looking at the different art, the damage from the wreck as well as the... More

What you need to know is to walk across 99 to the west side of the road to find the trailhead. Cross over Millar Creek Rd and pass the bus stop -trail is on your left before you get to Olives grocery (which is a great place to stop for a snack and has a nice clean bathroom). Trail will... More

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.
