historic site

The site of a derailed train in the 1950s, old boxcars remain scattered along the trail. Now covered in graffiti, they have become a popular hiking and trail running destination. The trail also offers spectacular views of the Cheakamus River. A newly erected suspension bridge connects to the Sea to Sky trail on the other side of the Cheakamus River. Please avoid hiking on the train tracks, as this is an active railway. For a shorter route to the wreck, from the official trainwreck parking lot: https://www.alltrails.com/trail/canada/british-columbia/whistler-train-wreck-via-sea-to-sky-and-train-wreck-trails

Easy trail. A bit hard to find without proper map. Beautiful scenery right by the river. Beautiful waterfalls too

Awesome time spent at the trainwreck trail! It's more a walk than a hike so easy for families to do. There is some spots where it could be better indicated but your common sense will lead you the right way. Views of the river along the way and the graffiti at the end, just wow! Highly recommend

Lovely hike! The trails could be better marked great mix of past, nature and present. It was amazing. Beautiful views and lots of places to explore

Einfache Strecke, wunderschöne Wasserfälle, manchmal etwas schwierig den Weg zu finden ist aber gut machbar mit der Karte. Güterwagons sind sehr schön. Bei den Wagons Hängbrücke nicht vergessen! Sehr empfehlenswert!

This is a good trail. Sometimes hard to follow the path, but the map helps. We strayed off the Trainwreck Trail a couple times to check out some other things like the suspension bridge which was awesome. Found a nice sunny open area to stop for lunch. We took the train tracks most of the way back. Some nice lookout spots along both trail and tracks. Be warned, there's only a handful of parking spots at the trailhead, so you may need to park elsewhere and walk to the trailhead.

Completed on March 8. Not much snow and fairly easy to follow! You can honestly just take the railway the entire way if you'd like (which we did on the way back) but it's fun to venture through the forest a little bit! Seeing the wreckage is fairly cool. We stopped for a lot of pictures and still finished in under 1:30.

Great accessible trail- currently snowy but packed down from regular foot traffic. Snow trap were helpful but not necessary. From the parking lot, the trail is clearly marked. The suspension bridge and train cars are cool to explore- takes 30 minutes as suggested.

Icy hike in. Wear spikes or snowshoes. Not a serene hike, but it is fun to see the cars in the woods. Good hike for littles. And probably better (albeit more crowded) in the summer.

Lovely views but quite close to the highway for much of the route, so too much traffic noise for my liking.

Very easy, seemed too short, we would have liked to go farther! Great variety with the river, the bridge and the train wrecks in the woods. Not your typical hike.

Chouette randonnée, variée avec à la fin les wagons et le pont suspendu.

A little confusing to navigate but just be sure to follow the railroad tracks and watch for blue arrows. Beautiful waterfall and the wrecked train cars are very interesting.
