“awsome trails near the lake”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Rented a bike and rode with the family on the infinite number of trails around the lake. Beautiful landscapes, lots of wildlife (we saw a bear). Do not miss it on your next trip to whislter.

“True to is word as we got lost.”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

This was a nice hike when we eventually found it.
The map of Whistler needs improvement as locals and tourists alike got confused. We eventually found the lost Lake and had a nice walk around it. Pity that the weather was not great.
The icing on the cake was a bear cub grazing right near the Austria House.

“Fun, easy and beautiful bike ride”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We rode bikes around Lost Lake. Some of the route was paved while the rest was gravel. The scenery was awesome, but it would have been better if the path was closer to the lake. The mountains in the background are stunning. Overall, it was a nice, easy ride to enjoy.

“Amazing Spring Hike”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Lost Lake is aptly named. We tried to see the sunrise reflections from the lakeside, so did a morning 2km hike from the main road. Since we didn't know you could literally drive up to the lakeside, we took the 30 minutes hiking route from Whistler village.

The paths cross multiple areas and the detailed maps don't clearly explain the changes in elevation. It's a safe bet that the more difficult ones tend to head up some windy roads and lead to some look-out point. If you have 2 hours, it's easy to get lost and enjoy the green trails. I really enjoyed walking along the river and then heading up on the North side. If you follow the Thomas Moore trail, you can get to the Green Lake look-out point.

The map is deceivingly small. These hikes will take a bit of time, so make time for it. If you do get lost, just look for the orange trail and you can always take that backwards towards the main entrance. I can see a lot of these trails being awesome for dog walking and biking as well. It probably gets a lot more crowded during the summer and the winter is perfect for snow-shoeing.
