There is about an hour hike in bad out, but it's a nice shaded hike through trees and by rivers and a waterfall. Train wreck has a number of paintings and there are more than 5 cars scattered in the area.

We had fun hiking in the snow walking by the train tracks, under the road, along the river, past the waterfall, to stumble into these cargo trailers left from the wreck. Fun to climb on top of the cars and inside. Trail was easy to walk, but icy in some sections.

This is an easy walk to do with those who don't like going up or down hill. There are a few web sites with directions and images, so be sure to check them out. It is important to stay off the train tracks as much as possible - can't imagine ruining your hike because you got a fine for being... More

A short hike from heading West from Function Junction (approx 4km total). End your hike with a visit and beer at the Whistler Brewery.

Heading to see the Whistler Train Wreck is a great day trip from Vancouver. Much of it is along the Sea to Sky highway (amazing views) and there are some fun stops you can make while getting there (we hit the Britannia Mine Museum, Shannon Falls, and Brandywine Falls along our way). The trail to the Wreck from Whistler was... More

This decades-old traincar graveyard is a great break from hitting the slopes and a beautiful surprise of color in the forest. It's not very hard to find, the trail starts right near Olive's. Its a short hike, and conveniently close to Whistler brewing company if you need to rehydrate afterwards.

Beautiful hike along forest trails by the Cheakamus river, plenty of open river views along the way and the train cars at the end, covered in graffiti, are like a surreal art exhibit in the middle of the woods. Do some research (WhistlerHiatus provides directions) before embarking on this hike - it's easy to lose the trail in a few... More

I love going to the trainwreck, it can be hard to find sometimes so best to ask on how to get there. With 7 carriages to explore and a great walk to and from the wreck, it is always an enjoyable day.

The train wreck hike was a great adventure, and felt much like a treasure hunt. Because the train wreck hike requires you to cross the train tracks, which is illegal, the whereabouts of the train wrecks is forbidden to talk about. Which made it all the more tempting to find. Before you go, make sure you do a bit of... More
