The Lost Lake Nature Trail is a nice stroll along a wooded path to a small lake in the middle of Whistler. It has a beach and nice views, and beautiful rhododendron lining the path. Nice walk or bike ride.

Mostly flat pleasant walk up to lake. From here trail goes on around the lake. Easy walk suitable for all ages.

There are at least 2 ways to get to the train wreck. We went the route of the reviews that said start behind olive market. However, you can also start on the other side of the highway by athlete village. Coming from that direction, the trail is super easy, flat and nicely graveled. Because this approach is very easy to traverse, there will be a lot of other people when you get to train wreck. Additionally, we noticed that people use a small side of the highway pull out right next to the crash site and simply cross the tracks to get to the wreckage.

We did the hike in a loop, starting behind olive market and coming out at athlete village. Then walking down the road to the highway and crossing back to Olive market.

The olive market route is more scenic because there are gorgeous viewpoints over the river. The actual train wreck and suspension bridge are pretty neat. Overall super easy hike, more like a walk in the woods, but definitely enjoyable.

Wonderful trail. Coming from Australia where snow in most parts non-existent, it was gorgeous and exhilerating to walk in the snow, still very compacted in mid April. The fresh mountain air is amazing and to see the frozen lake and it starting to melt was a 1st! With the picturesque snow capped mountains as a backdrop it was breathtaking. Lots of dogs coming and going. Restroom at start and lots of little trails/bridges out to the lake. Small car park and not far from Whistler Village. Few little bridges with running water. Nice and peaceful being amongst nature! ❄️❄️

Fun short hike for the family during winter. Train cars and suspension bridge are nice payoffs.

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.

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 .

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 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.

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

Cool place to explore.

Good hike!

I LOVE British Columbia and Whistler! Trails are great and every skill level! Such an awesome day!

Easy but fun, with really great views.

Fun little hike.

Nice trail. Lots of mountain bikers to dodge. As hiker, turn on to all nature trails you can. They are only for hikers and beautiful! Whole trail is dog friendly with a dog beach.

Still a bit of snow at the top but not too much. Beautiful falls along the way and nice views at the top

We started on the "old school" trail right behind Olives market /parking lot; following the all trails route. Second guessed the blue flagging tape a couple of times but was still mostly the way we went. Some amazing views of the Rapids and cliffs. Even did a little geocaching once we made it to the wreck site. Returned on the "new" trail / suspension bridge which was a breeze but much appreciated in this 31 degree summer day :)

great, beautiful, but not marked so I had to read directions on whistlerhiatus.com

Great trail running!

Still very snowy and the last 2 bridges are not functional. Had to wade the river and then trek in the snow up the west side of the last bridge which was damaged by the winter. However rewarded by an incredible view where I ended up above rainbow lake.

Great trail - not well marked but follow the app. A nice loop if you cross the suspension bridge at the wreck and make your way back in the bike trails.

Great for the family...an absolute one of a kind!

Lots of trails everywhere along the way so it's easy to get lost. The graffiti marks the way. Once there it's amazing to see. The bridge is so much fun to cross. We looped around and ended up in the other side of function junction. Easy, no climb and it's beautiful.

very easy trail, the crashing river next you as you walk through these beautiful trees is utterly relaxing. The train cars covered in graffiti art gives a stunning abandoned feel.

This was a beautiful and tricky trail. We missed the train wreck and had to hike back but we did find and it was amazing to see this rusting box cars on a moss filled forest.
