There might be a trail in the forest, but we couldn't find it even with the official instructions and ended up (together with tens of other hikers) walking a long stretch along the train tracks. Some nice views, interesting bike park on the train wrecks but overall not a very interesting hike. The kids loved looking for Quartz rocks, which... More

Nice easy going hike through the woods. Start out behind olives store (good coffee). Go straight at the trail NOT right. Trail markings are a bit hard to spot in places but turn into the woods again when you see concrete that has colorful graffiti on it and then each time you pop out on the train track walk up... More

As one can only travel by this train from Vancouver up to Whistler in the summer this trip is a must and much better way than by car in my opinion, sit back, there is food on board ,relax and watch the scenery go by, wonderful way to arrive in Whistler

It was a nice hike thru the woods. The train cars, the raging river and don't forget to stop at the Whistler Brewing Company for a post hike pint!

Perfect little activity when you are in Whistler and there isn't too much snow. Stop at the little market place and bring some food for a picnic in the woods.

A lovely walk, park at Function Junction by Olive, and follow the yellow arrows. Be careful regarding passing trains. Take your camera, gorgeous views.

This is a cool walk heading south from Function Junction train tracks. If you are travelling here from the village look at spending about $20 on a cab or if you have the time spend $2.50 on the bus. I also heard from the locals that there use to be tours going to the train cars but it is illegal... More
