The river was raging on this day. Beautiful clear water, the roar of the rapids was breathtaking. Beautiful forest. Nice stop for all ages to see nature in all it's fury. Whistler is an amazing place to visit.

Nice trail meanders through the forest all along the river. Hard to find trailhead and parking. Raging beautiful river all along the path. They say it is flat but IS NOT.

The river was roaring and the hike is very doable for all types of hikers. The suspension bridge offers a thrill. Beautiful setting and a must when you visit Whistler!!
