Beautiful, quiet trail. Little traffic. Climb at start then levels off. A bit of a goat trail in sections but we found this fun

This hike has lots of uphill, but offers amazing views, especially along the musical bumps.

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.

Beautiful views along the musical bumps trail and down the valleys. Lots of elevation gained and lost along the trail. Mediocre campsite, did not go near the cabin as it was busy and full of mice apparently. Completed at the end of August and the day we left it snowed that evening.

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! ❄️❄️

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Great trail beautiful wild flowers.

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.

Great hike. Hiked it July 1 and 2, 2017. Took the Singing Pass Trail up. Last couple hours were in 2m of snow. Glad we had brought snowshoes. I had brought swim suits and towels but the lake was still frozen over...

There were only 10 people, including us, camping up there on a Canada Day long weekend so the place was very quiet.

Would like to spend 2 nights next time to be able to hike the Fissile or go up on the Overlord Glacier next time.

Amazing views that only a few hundred people in the world have had the chance to see... well worth it.

This is one of my favourite afternoon hikes in Whistler. You gets a bit of everything: forest walking, some ascents and descents, a lake, beautiful views and the feeling that you've done some exercise if you only have a few hours to spare. It's a little gem well worth doing! Park at the Interpretive Forest and walk along the Riverside Trails for a pleasant and longer loop.

Fabulous

Great easy hike with beautiful white water views all along the way. We combined the riverview trail with crater rim and it was 6 miles.

Really nice trail. Had a lot of snow at the higher elevations but still hikable in boots. Several trail runners passed by us. Skipped the left turn after the suspension bridge due to deepening snow. Ended up at just over 4 miles.

Great hike. Camping area around russet lake has views of glaciers, cheakamus lake, black tusk. Cold as fuck overnight. We saw marmots.
