Loggers Lake Hike

We spent the May Long Weekend in Whistler in the gorgeous sunshine and to find a lake or two to jump in! The hike up to Loggers Lake is a short scramble up from the parking lot, with a great add-on to a suspension bridge […]

Whistler Train Wreck Hike

Whistler Train Wreck Hike

A quick-paced walk from the Whistler Olympic Athlete’s village to a mangled, graffiti-covered train wreck is a lovely way to spend a morning. The trail was a little muddy but arrival to the wreck offered a glimpse into a different world. Sam and I climbed […]

Cabin Lake and Eagle Bluffs Hike

Cabin Lake and Eagle Bluffs Hike
