The alpine hiking trails on Whistler Mountain are the ultimate in luxurious hiking. Little hiking effort gets you amazing views of turquoise lakes, snowy mountain, valleys of flowers, waterfalls and spectacular glaciers. In the summer months, Whistler Mountain is somewhat divided in two.  The lower half of the mountain is for biking and the upper half is for hiking, sightseeing, trail running, eating and drinking.

There are a few directions you can start hiking from the Roundhouse Lodge, however, taking the Peak Express(quad chairlift) up to the summit of Whistler Mountain is an amazing place to start. The Peak Express is an exhilarating ride that takes you to the start of Whistler Mountain's best hiking trails. The Half Note Trail, High Note Trail and Mathew's Traverse start here. The High Note Trail in turn leads to the Musical Bumps Trail to Russet Lake and Singing Pass in Garibaldi Provincial Park.  The summit of Whistler Mountain is also a destination of its own. Spectacular views all around from this rocky, alpine summit visible from almost everywhere in Whistler.  Black Tusk comes into view as you exit the Peak Express.  This amazingly distinct pinnacle of jet-black rock is a local icon and remnant of a not too distant history of volcanism in the area.  As you admire its absurdly vertical form, remind yourself that there is almost certainly a few hikers looking back at you from its summit.

Looking right as you get off the Peak Express you will see an enormous inuksuk.  A remnant of the 2010 Olympic Games and now a fixture in thousands of photos.  This beautiful stacking of huge rocks is a take-away from the Inuit tradition of marking routes in an otherwise stark landscape with a human form.  The inuksuk is part of the Whistler Summit Interpretive Walk.  This 1.6 kilometre(1 mile), trail takes you along an excellent route around the summit of Whistler to one amazing viewpoint after another.

Branching off of the Whistler Summit Interpretive Walk you will see the High Note Trail extend toward the rocky cliffs.  The High Note Trail is a beautiful trail that skirts the edge of Whistler Mountain for several kilometres before bending back around Whistler to the Roundhouse Lodge.  A total of 9.4 kilometres(6 miles), the High Note Trail is a must-see trail on Whistler.  For much of the trail you have Cheakamus Lake down the valley on your right.  This huge lake fills the valley below with an extraordinarily vivid turquoise colour.  This amazing colour caused by glacial meltwater filling the lake with suspended particles of rock which in turn reflect the light in a strikingly beautiful way.

The High Note Trail takes about 3 hours for most to hike and returns you to the Roundhouse Lodge where you began before walking down to the Peak Express and riding it up to the trailhead at the summit of Whistler. If you prefer a shorter route you can veer off from the High Note Trail, part way and take the Half Note Trail back. The Half Note Trail takes a couple kilometres off of the High Note Trail, though doesn't cut it in half as the name suggests. The Half Note Trail connects you to Pika's Traverse, which is an access road that runs from Whistler's summit down to the Roundhouse. Though it is a dusty road, it still has beautiful views for most of the way.

If you take the High Note Trail and continue further along the ridge of Whistler, you will get more stunning views of Cheakamus Lake before it bends left and in the direction of the Roundhouse Lodge.  At this bend you will come to the trail junction for the Musical Bumps Trail that continues toward Russet Lake and Singing Pass.  This is Piccolo Summit which leads to Flute Summit and then Oboe Summit.  These summits, long ago, became known as the Musical Bumps and inevitably the Musical Bumps Trail.

High Note Trail View of Cheakamus Lake

The Musical Bumps Trail takes you to Russet Lake in Garibaldi Provincial Park.  This wonderful little lake lays in a brutally hostile looking valley dominated by The Fissile.  The Fissile is the strikingly triangular shaped, reddish orange mountain visible from Whistler Village. If you walk along Northlands Boulevard in the Village and see Blackcomb Mountain and Whistler Mountain with the Peak to Peak Gondola running between them, then you will have seen The Fissile.  It lays directly behind and seems to want to pierce the suspended 4 kilometre long gondola lines.

The Fissile is climbable by the brave, but Russet Lake is a popular hiking destination for weekend hikers in Garibaldi Park.  It can be hiked in a day, however, at 28 kilometres roundtrip, it is a brutally long day.  The Singing Pass Trail which begins in Whistler Village(near the taxi and bus loop up the stairs from the Dubh Linn Gate Pub), takes you to Russet Lake as well.  This makes for a long 28 kilometre trail that can be done in reverse for free as you can hike from the Village all the way to the summit of Whistler and ride the gondola back down.

Whistler Mountain Trail Map

Most start hiking the Whistler Mountain hiking trails at the Roundhouse Lodge at the terminus of the Whistler Gondola. You can also access Whistler Mountain for free by hiking the long Singing Pass trail and then across the Musical Bumps Trail to the peak of Whistler Mountain. The Singing Pass Trail is long and boring as it runs a fairly direct line in between Whistler and Blackcomb Mountain, and always in deep forest. Years ago this 11.5 kilometre trail was much more enjoyable owing to the access road and parking area 4 kilometres up the trail. A slide took a chuck of the road out and years later you will still only find a ravine that you have to negotiate before continuing up to the original trailhead. Accessing Whistler Mountain with a day or season's pass is the best option for most. You ride in style up to the Roundhouse Lodge. From the lodge you can start hiking in a few directions or take the short walk down to the Peak Chair and ride up to the Summit of Whistler Mountain. A pretty amazing way to start your hike.

Camping & Bivouacking - Whistler Mountain

Camping ProhibitedCamping possibilities are endless and amazing on both Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain.  The High Note Trail exists on a fairly popular hiking route and though bivouacking is not explicitly prohibited, doing so in the vicinity of the trail and public would be weird, likely illegal and definately frowned upon, likely leading to your eviction if spotted. Most camping is centred around nearby Russet Lake, which sits in a beautiful setting near where Whistler and Blackcomb Mountain meet.  Russet Lake is in Garibaldi Provincial Park and enjoys some nice amenities.  There are outhouses, one at Russet Lake and another partway along the Singing Pass Trail.  Russet Lake also has a nice, solid, hut that anyone is welcome to use for free.  The numerous and very nice places to put up a tent around Russet Lake ensures that this hut remains vacant the majority of nights in the summer and fall.  In the winter months, however, the Russet Lake Hut is a hive of activity and cherished as a temporary winter home for Whistler's numerous, hard-core skiers/snowboarders/snowshoers.

An amazing alternative to Russet Lake are the countless, unmarked places to bivouac along the Musical Bumps Trail.  The Musical Bumps Trail skirts the edge of Whistler Mountain almost all the way to Russet Lake.  As you hike you keep passing Whistler chairlifts on your left and to your right, endless wilderness descending to Cheakamus Lake.  About 45 minutes beyond the High Note Trail you will start noticing some enticing areas on your right where you could disappear into the forest and set up camp next to an idyllic stream with an amazing view over Cheakamus Lake.  Keep in mind that you should be out of sight and of course leave no trace that you were there, as camping is almost certainly not allowed.  Whistler has not had to expressly prohibit camping as it has yet to be a significant problem in the past.  You should, however, consider camping prohibited on Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain, even though you may not find it this written anywhere.  You are best to hike through Whistler Mountain's beautiful trails to Garibaldi Provincial Park and Russet Lake's beautiful campground.

Russet Lake Campground in Garibaldi Park

Russet Lake Campground in Garibaldi Provincial ParkRusset Lake, high up in the alpine at the edge of Whistler Mountain in the shadow of The Fissile and overlooking Overlord Glacier.  Most hike in from the top of Whistler Mountain via the Whistler Gondola and Peak Express Chair then along the gorgeous, fairly easy, but quite long, High Note trail and Musical Bumps trail.  You can also hike in for free via the somewhat long and tedious Singing Pass trail from Whistler Village.  You can hike the Singing Pass trail for free then return to Whistler via the Musical Bumps trail and ride down the mountain for free if you like saving the cost for the Whistler lift pass.  Riding up the Whistler Gondola and the Peak Express Chair are a pretty amazing and less exhausting way to get to Russet Lake and well worth the money!  Russet Lake is in a stunning valley at the shore of Russet Lake and overlooking a glacier valley with Overlord Glacier far below.  You will find just 7 tent areas at Russet Lake, however on a busy day you might see dozens of tents in the grass and gravel meadow that surrounds the lake.  Russet Lake is also home to a small hut and soon to be a much more elaborate and large hut planned to be finished in January of 2019.  The Russet Lake hut is free to use, though you still need to have an overnight camping pass to stay in it.  You can’t reserve the hut and it is first come, first served.  Like other Garibaldi Park campgrounds, Russet Lake is open year-round, but mostly used in the summer months.  Russet Lake is part of the winter skiing/snowboarding route, the Spearhead Traverse.  Popular in the winter for hardcore skiers and snowboarders, a new series of huts is under construction to replace the single Russet Lake hut that occupies one point along this arduous route that effectively connects Whistler Mountain to Blackcomb Mountain.  Fees Per Night: $10 Adult - $5 Kids(6-15) - Hut is free to use with campsite permit  Campsite fees must be paid online in advance at the BC Parks Garibaldi Provincial Park reservations page.

Camping in Garibaldi Provincial Park

BC Parks Garibaldi Provincial Park CampingDay hiking in Garibaldi Provincial Park is free and parking at all the trailheads is free as well.  If you are camping overnight in Garibaldi Park you will have to pay a campsite fee.  There are ten official BC Parks campsites in Garibaldi Park with dedicated and very well designed tent pads, platforms or clearings at each.  They are all now reservable year-round, with the exception of the Red Heather campsite near Elfin Lakes which is only open for winter camping.  In 2018, for the first time you can legally register and pay to camp in the backcountry beyond the official campsites.  The areas you can wilderness camp is quite restricted in an effort to not overrun the park and maintain some control over the massive numbers of hikers in the park.  Backcountry Camping Permits for Garibaldi Park cost $10 per person, per night.  Children 6-16 years old pay $5 per person, per night and kids under 6 years old are free.  Campsite fees must be paid online in advance at the BC Parks Garibaldi Provincial Park reservations page.

The campsites open year-round in Garibaldi Provincial Park include: the Garibaldi Lake campground which has 50 well laid out tent pads and clearings in the beautiful forest just steps from the shore of Garibaldi Lake.  Not far from the campsite at Garibaldi Lake you have another large and very beautiful campground at Taylor Meadows.  The Taylor Meadows campground has 40 very nice tent clearings and platforms dispersed in the marvellous forest with Black Tusk looming in the distance.  Beyond Black Tusk and Panorama Ridge you come to another beautiful Garibaldi Park campground at Helm Creek.  Helm Creek has 30 tent pads is a nice meadow with stunning views of Black Tusk.  Down the valley from Helm Creek you cross Cheakamus River and have two more campgrounds along the shore of Cheakamus Lake.  The Cheakamus Lake campground has 8 tent clearings in a beautiful forest along the edge of the lake.  Further along the shore of Cheakamus Lake you come to another campground, the Singing Creek campground with another 6 beautiful tent clearings at the edge of the lake near Singing Creek.  High up in the alpine of Whistler Mountain you have Russet Lake with 7 nice tent clearings near the shore of the lake and overlooking the mighty Overlord Glacier far below.

Blackcomb Mountain lays just across the valley from Russet Lake and Wedge Mountain, the tallest mountain in the Garibaldi Range is home to another Garibaldi Park campground, the Wedgemount Lake campground.  This beautiful campsite has 20 tent pads and clearings scattered through the huge boulder field overlooking the lake and along the gravel and grassy shore of the lake.  Back down in the southern end of Garibaldi Park are the campsites at and near Elfin Lakes.  Elfin Lakes campsite has 35 tent pads and the huge and inviting Elfin Lakes hut has 33 bunk spots!  Ten kilometres past Elfin Lakes you come to another campsite at Rampart Ponds, just 1.5 kilometres from Mamquam Lake and with 12 tent clearings.  All Garibaldi Park campgrounds are well maintained and often very busy.  Remember that you must pack out what you pack in as there are no garbage facilities at the campsites.  You will find fresh water at all the campsites and along nearly all the trails.  Some areas like at Garibaldi Lake or Elfin Lakes you should filter or treat the water you drink.  At other campsites such as Helm Creek, Singing Creek, Wedgemount LakeTaylor Meadows or Russet Lake, treating water flowing from a glacier poses little risk of giardia(beaver fever).

Facilities at Whistler Mountain

There are plenty of washroom facilities on Whistler Mountain.  The Whistler Gondola drops you off at the Roundhouse Lodge, which has washrooms, gift shops and two restaurants.  From the Roundhouse you have a 5 minute hike down to the Peak Express Chair.  There are a couple slight variations on the route you can take for the High Note Trail, however, the normal route returns you past washrooms at a small cabin about 7 kilometres into the 9.5k roundtrip journey.  If you are continuing past the High Note Trail toward Russet Lake or the Singing Pass Trail, you will find outhouses at both Russet Lake and partway down/up the Singing Pass Trail.

Restrictions and Concerns at Whistler Mountain

Not Dog FriendlyNo Campfires AllowedNo Bikes AllowedCamping ProhibitedNo Motorized VehiclesThe massive network of downhill biking trails are separated from the hiking trails, so you won't find any bikes on the hiking trails. You will find bikes on the Whistler Gondola and the Peak Chair as there is a massive bike trail that begins at the top of Whistler Mountain. Tragically dogs are not welcome on Whistler or Blackcomb Mountain, or any of Garibaldi Provincial Park. This is out of respect for the local wildlife as well as the inability of chairlifts to safely accommodate transporting pets.  Unfortunately that rules out quite a few hiking trails in the Whistler area.  There are an ever increasing number of dog friendly hiking alternatives in Whistler. Certainly the recently established section of the Sea to Sky Trail above Green Lake is an excellent dog friendly hiking trail to try.  The Sea to Sky Trail runs for over 30 kilometres through Whistler and every inch of it is pretty amazing.  From Brandywine Falls, through and over the Bungee Bridge, up through Cheakamus Crossing and through Whistler Village and beyond Green Lake, the Sea to Sky Trail is an incredibly way to see Whistler with your pets.  For a list of some of the best, dog friendly hikes around Whistler try here..

Trailhead & Parking Directions to Whistler Mountain

Parking & Trailhead DirectionsPublic Transit to TrailheadParking in Whistler Village is in one of the four main day lots. Parking rules in Whistler changed to pay parking a few years ago, and parking rules keep changing. However, it seems that Lot 4 will always allow free, long-term parking for the High Note Trail, Singing Pass and Russet LakeBe sure to read the parking signs to ensure you are correctly and legally parked for the length of your stay. Lot 4 is easy to find.  As you enter Whistler Village on Village Gate Boulevard, drive straight to the T junction stop sign at Blackcomb Way.  Turn Left onto Blackcomb Way and you will see Lots 1 to 4 on your right.  Lot 4 is the last one on your right, however you can enter the lots anywhere as they are all joined.  Lots 1, 2, and 3 are all pay parking and you will see plenty of signs and instructions to pay. 

More Great Hiking Around Whistler Mountain

Blackcomb Mountain has come alive with beautiful hiking trails in recent years.  With the 2008 addition of the Peak to Peak Gondola which connects Blackcomb Mountain to Whistler Mountain, the demand for mountain trails is higher than ever.  A dozen years ago, you would just have had some rough hiking trails to follow, and not many hikers to follow them.  Now you have mapboards, trail signs, viewpoint seating areas and six popular, named trails to hike.  The trails are mostly easy and relaxing, however the Decker Loop Trail at the far end of Blackcomb Mountain is very challenging and spectacularly scenic.  For the most part, you will find yourself winding through a nice alpine forest scattered with enormous fields of erratics leading to one great viewpoint after another.  You can hike for as little as 15 minutes or more than 3 hours, depending on the trail or trails you choose to follow.  Blackcomb Mountain Lake and Blackcomb Mountain Peak that looms far above it are the most popular destinations for hikers and getting there and back can be done in a couple hours. Russet Lake, in Garibaldi Park is the wonderfully expansive hiking area located just a few spectacular steps from Whistler.  Among the various ways to reach Russet Lake, possibly the most impressive are the approaches from either the Musical Bumps Trail or the High Note Trail.  Both begin from high up on Whistler Mountain.  Musical Bumps starts near the Roundhouse on Whistler and the High Note Trail begins at the top of Whistler near the Peak Chair.  Though Russet Lake is not terribly impressive in terms of size or colour, the valley around it is remarkably beautiful.
