Backpacked to Russet Lake from the Whistler Gondola on the way and hiked all the way back out on a loop and we stayed 2 nights at the camp - excellent hike in with beautiful views and good challenging terrain. Camped at Russet Lake campsite and day hiked to Overlord Glacier - good scrambling route and it can be done as a loop back to the campsite. Cold at night bring a good sleeping bag - this was early September and it was cold!

A bit hard to find, park at Olive's Market. The trail can be a bit hard to follow at times, look for the orange blazes, teal as well. Lots of great views, cute suspension bridge near the trains. Nice payoff for the effort.

The trail was really beautiful but I couldn’t complete the loop due to heavy snow and unsure of logger Lake was safe to walk on.

there's a rocky part under a bridge that was slightly tricky and had to cross a stream a couple times. the train went by shortly after we made it to the wreck. there's a part towards the end where we had to walk really close to the tracks for a couple minutes or so, so we finished just in time. we took the sea to sky trail back.

Such a awesome hike! The entrance/parking is hard to find if you are not familiar with the area! It’s behind the olive store. I would suggest doing the actual hike to the trains. There was a lot of very pretty waterfalls along the way. However I would take the train tracks back! It’s way faster and easier! Be careful however because it’s still a active railroad. I would make sure your dogs are on a lease for this hike, as there are a lot of cliff like edging along the trail .

Plenty of trails to make this a longer or shorter hike as you like.

Short and steep hike along a wide gravel/rock road to the top! Views are amazing, it feels like you're in the Alps.

Hard hike through the fairly dense woods most of the time leads you to a spectacular and rewarding lake view. The lake is super clear and it feels like you are in a different world. Simply gorgeous.

It was quite chilly at the lake: windy and so cold I had to put on all my layers. There are a couple of bridges, one is a suspension bridge. Added bonus of having outhouses along the trail and at the end!

This was a great trail with great views but if you do the 8km loop as pictured in the app - I would call it a moderate trail for sure, not easy. Definitely steep sections and it's a good workout overall.

Definitely not a hard trail, but the views are out of this world.

A short but very beautiful hike. Very relaxing and amazing views and lakes. I enjoyed this hike a lot, it was good to clear my mind and enjoy the outdoors.

This trail has become very popular, especially since recent trail improvements modified terrain to make it more accessible. Expect crowds. For better experience walk past the outer group of train cars to the bike path where there are some sweet river overlooks.

easy walk to the lake from the village.

Good views but the loop was not straight forward

First class views of Overlord Glacier! Don't miss this trail.

Best hike of my life.

This was a really great end of the day walk. The trains were beautiful and the river was roaring.

Varied landscapes, managable for out of shape hikers like me, if you take your time.

The path gets a bit hard to see at the highest point.

Cool place to explore.

Good hike!
