Distance: 3.7 mile (6km) loop. A perfect trip for families and out-of-town guests. Easy access and beautiful scenery.

The 6 km (3.7 mile) hike takes you to and around Lost Lake. Lost Lake is at the heart of the densely forested Lost Lake Park. The wide gravel trail runs around this charming lake through a enjoyable forest draped in old man's beard lichen (usnea).

Lost Lake is a small lake just north of Whistler Village, within walking distance. It's a popular area in the summer and the beach draws most of the crowd.

The trail can be started in Whistler Village and is easily navigable. Depending on where you are in the Village you can access trail from a few different directions. The easiest way to find it and to park your car, go to the carpark southeast of Lorimer Rd and Blackcomb Way. There you can hop on the Valley Trail and head northbound towards the lake.

The Valley Trail eventually descends and exits onto the gravel road at an intersection with Lost Lake in view. Walk down towards the wooden bridge and watch for a sign on your left that marks the trail. This route will take you around the west side of the lake, offering some scenic viewpoints away from the frequent crowded beach area during the summer months.

Lost Lake Walk

Lost Lake is a beautiful spot to get your adventure started in Whistler. It's a nice easy hike that's a loop trail around the lake. Plenty of opportunity for photos, to see wildlife & unwind!
