The Road: The trailhead is reachable by 2 wheel drive, but it's slow going and better if you have a truck. 4x4 not necessary, but will definitely help you get up the road - higher clearance vehicle is a good idea. The city's list of...More

This beautiful forest and its atmospheric grove of massive ancient trees is well worth a visit, it’s about a 20 min drive from central Whistler village. To get to the site you face a drive up a 2 mile steep service track, which is very...More

Overall, I liked the hike. The road up to the bottom of the trail was much rougher than I'd thought from reading descriptions. Our main mistake was not taking bug spray as the mesquitos were all over us. Other than that, it was all good....More

This was a short hike and climb through a tranquil forest. The drive up to the parking lot on a forest road was dicey, rocky and pitted, but we managed to make it there in our van. Lovely creek and surroundings along the way made...More

This road is a service road, which means it isn't a smooth and carefree drive. You will put your defensive driving skills to use on the trek to the parking area for the hike. Hold on to your seat and be prepared for an adventure....More

The logging road to get here is pretty hairy, but once you arrive, this is an incredibly well-signposted and maintained trail. It is a lovely walk through the woods; gentle incline on the way to the cedars grove. Once there, there are some interesting plaques...More
