Had a great time on MSAA's hiking tour here!

Trail is closed for a year due to construction I found out by googling other trails that connected

Tried to get to the trail, road was closed. It looks from the map that you have to hike miles to get to the trailhead. Maybe I am missing something?

Agree, the Crater Rim portion of the trail is at least moderate - a short, yet steep climb with some tricky sections. Beautiful views and a jump in the lake is a must

Great trail run and still quite a bit of snow but not on the trail. Outstanding views at the top!

Fantastic trail, gorgeous views. I would rate the Crater Rim portion as at least "moderate" as it was a bit tricky (particularly with a baby carrier).

Easy trail to a beautiful lake. Can either take the nature trail or the cross country ski trails that are gravel to Lost Lake. Once there, there were plenty of activities to do and docks to swim out to in the summer months.

Great early season hike. Pretty easy going apart from one or two bits that get the blood going but nothing hectic. Some really nice views of Black Tusk & Loggers Lake.

Lots of different terrain, very beautiful. Once the trail brings you down by the lake, it makes for a great lunch stop!

We wanted to hike Half Note to High Note but unfortunately the trail was closed. Instead we took Pika and Matthew’s Traverse which is basically a graded mountain road to the top of Whistler Peak. There is construction going on and looks like the suspension bridge is conpleted and will be opening soon. The views at the peak is majestic. You can see all of Garibaldi, Black Tusk and the many lakes.

Nice quiet hike with minimal elevation gain. No spectacular views. Well marked. Though we did not mountain bike, it appeared to be nice for that.

Hiked to the top June 20th. Awesome views through the hike, especially at the peak! 18 foot snow walls on each side of the road about 1.5 miles up. Definitely a work out. Garmin showed almost 1,400 ft of elevation gain.

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
