Whistler Valley Trail

There’s over 40km of Valley Trail to explore in Whistler. My favourite route visits Lost Lake, Green Lake, and Alta Lake. For a Five-Lake tour, add on Nita and Alpha Lakes! The route is great for cyclists, walkers, and runners. There’s art to find along the way – look for giant ravens on the Valley Trail, an old car, and giant chairs in Alta Lake Park.

You’ll find this map and 80+ more in the book! Order your copy today

 

Ride along the shores of Green Lake to through Meadow Park. Look for beavers on the lakeshore.

 

What are the ravens made of? Bicycle Tires! Look for these giant sculptures at the north end of Whistler Golf Course.

 

For beginners: I like to start from the village and ride WEST through the underpass to the Whistler Golf Course, then through Whistler Cay following the signs to Rainbow Park. There’s lots to do at the park — playground, picnic tables, swim in the lake.  The trails loop and circle and you’ll have fun exploring these mostly flat rides. For a good description of easy family rides check out whistlerbikeguide.com

 

For the more adventurous there are many mountain bike trails higher up the hillsides.  They are colour-coded for difficulty.  Check out the interactive trail map or just head out to Lost Lake and find the green signs. Couldn’t be easier … and if I can do them, then so can you !  Trailforks has a great map – explore some new routes here: Trailforks – WhistlerWhistler’s Hidden Gems Ride: When I take guests on a tour of the Valley Trail this is our route.  I hope you enjoy it, too.

Head down to Nita Lake and pick up food for a picnic at Alpha Lake Park and discover the Giant Chairs at Alta Lake Park.
