Accidentally ended up on this trail! Great hike after wandering the bike trails for an hour. Eventually found or way down. Nice moderate hike, nothing too extreme. Just watch out for bikes!

Kid and stroller friendly. Lovely lake views and ‘beach’ to sit and take in the view as well as other platforms on the lake.

Fantastic trail with glacial caves, alpine meadows, incredible vistas. Fairly difficult ascent. Plan on 4 hours up and 1.5 down. Bring lunch! You will need the fuel.

Bring Lunch! Beautiful trail, captivating the whole way. The lake and glacier were such an amazing prize to reach.

A great hike! Definitely not an easy hike. Did with a friend as an overnight camp, so had our packs which added a little difficulty. Took us 3.25hrs up and 2.75hrs down. Was the 2nd week of September and the lake was clouded in and it snowed, temp was hovering around 0 degrees so layers were helpful s when you stopped it got cold quick.

Hike itself is a near constant uphill at most points and a steady pace ensures no burn out (i.e. don't rush it at the easy points as the steeper points will take more out of you.) Take your time on the last 500m or so as it is an open, steep climb along large rocks and slippery gravel.

Cute trail, great for families. The map here is somewhat misleading as it does not start at the “official” trailhead. And the trail is not 2.8 miles, more like maybe a mile and a half round trip. I think there is a newer entry in the app for this trail called the Whistler Trainwreck Trail via Sea to Sky — that one has the correct trailhead marked which is actually easy to find. There’s even a small parking area for the trail (on Jane Lakes Road.) Basically, from the 99, go south on Cheakamus Lake Road (by the Whistler Interpretive Forest), keep right to Legacy Road (for a short distance) then to Jane Lakes Road. You will see a small parking area shortly, and the trailhead will be near a stop sign.

This is a mountain biking trail, but it’s pretty enough for a hike if you’re just looking for a little bit of exercise. There are some hills, and a loose rocky patch where it connects to the Centennial Trail, but generally a nice walkable surface.

Great little hike! The train wreck is really neat. Instead of following the man made path, you can cut down to the river and follow a dirt trail that has a some pretty sweet views of the river/cliffs. Parking is really easy and straightforward if you follow this site: https://www.whistler.com/pdf/maps/whistler-hiking-trail-head-map.pdf. Trail head is well labeled.

I love steep hikes, and this one definitely satisfied. As a day hike, this took my sister and I 6 hours total (3 hours up, 2 down, and 1 to enjoy the stupendous views at the top).

Even though I did this hike in regular running shoes, I would recommend using proper hiking shoes/boots because of how steep it is. Also, be sure to bring extra layers because it was quite cold at the top.

I noticed lots of people commenting about bugs so we made sure to use bug spray and we encountered hardly any. Not sure if this was because the bug spray worked or because of the cooler weather.

Nice trail. Goes around loggers lake then down by the river. Great trail for the dog.

Gorgeous trail and views the entire way. Hiked today and while it was a bit busy at first, the crowd thinned out as I moved along. Very rocky downward climb at first but it levels out for quite a bit giving you lots of amazing views of Cheakamus Lake. You do climb quite a bit toward the end. It’s worth it. Not to be missed!!!

Enjoyed this hike, very easy and a lot to enjoy for the short distance.

Easy hike, nothing too exciting. Wide trail and easy to get to from Whistler Village

I would call this a more intermediate hike, especially compared to Wedge. It’s a nice hike with a few steep parts. The meadows up top near the lake are full of wildflowers, it’s stunning. Went swimming out to an iceberg.. had to be done!

One of the more challenging hikes I’ve done in Whistler. Pretty relentless in regards to incline most the way up. The waterfall you catch a glimpse of is epic. Took just under 3 hours to get up there one way. Camped up there - it’s August and it was absolutely freezing! It rained all morning so made for a slippery, soggy descent. Saw lots of people starting their hike after 1pm, with only small day packs.. I wouldn’t do this as a day hike that late

Super easy and great for kids, bikes and strollers

Did this hike with my 6 yr old daughter. The trail head not very well marked on the Whistler web site and the trail itself was not marked at all other than a small sign for the trail head. We ended up running into a Harrison Ford movie set and the security guy wasn’t sure what to do and he had us going back and forth until we were finally able to pass through. Their movie set took up the best view of the falls so we missed that. Other than that the train wreck hike wasn’t bad the rest of the way and the wreck itself was pretty cool. We found a different way to go back which was much easier. I’ve been on better hikes.

Awesome hike, big elevation gain: 1200m. Did as an overnight, tough hike with a pack but worth it.

incredible hike. even better views! worth the effort! highly recommend staying the night and climbing some of the surrounding peaks.

Beautiful hike, completed today although a little smokey. Still beautiful views. Please note - in order to get to the trailhead you must upload on Whistler Gondola. They do not allow dogs unless they are service animals - even then I'm unsure.

Definitely worth the effort.

Easy and quick trail, not far from Whistler. Very unique compared to the usual mountains of BC

Fun to do. Worthy of the trek.

Although the trailhead was hard to find ( we had to ask local people as the app was off) this hike is great. We did it clockwise getting up the steepest part of the trail (Ridge trail and Crater Rim trail) and going down on the more gradual part (Farside trail). The Fareside trail follows the river, it’s beautiful.

Really cool spot to hangout.

Awesome trail! Well marked and super fun. We went up from the top of alpine way instead. Took us two and a half hours to get up (9km). Pretty easy sailing until the end which was really hard to get over the rocks. About an hour and a half to get to our car.

Nice walk on the forest with amazing swim at Loggers Lake but definitely not an easy trail on the crater rim part. I would say it is a moderate walk.

Realy easy hike,
The lake was warm enough for me to swim, and I hate cold water! :)
Dogs are allowed only on one beach, which is nice whether you like dogs or not.
Doing the full loop is nice as you can also make a stop at Green lake which is nice too.
Good to relax, family friendly.
A lot of smoke the last 3 days.

Great trail! The lake view is worth the hike. The trail is well marked, just follow the orange markers.

You climb the first two kilometers then it is mainly flat for about three kilometers. After that the climbing start, except for the short distance through the meadow, all the way to the lake. The climb through the boulder field to the lake is not bad.

Bring bug and bear repellent. There are a lot of bugs and, although we did not see a bear, another group did.

One of the most beautiful destinations I've ever hiked to! Highly recommend - it wasn't TOO difficult with just a day pack. Bring lots of water, warm layers for the top and bug spray! Hiked this in late July in 32° weather.
