Join one of our interpretive hiking guides as they take you into the Cheakamus River Valley. You will hike along a trail under a canopy of Ancient Cedars and towering Douglas Fir trees. This valley has special spiritual significance to the local First Nations of the area. The upper part of this valley is home to an old-growth, temperate rain forest that has been left undisturbed for thousands of years. Did you know that close to 25% of the world’s temperate rainforest is in BC?
The forest is carpeted with green moss and dense stands of Devils Club making this is an excellent place for photography. A moderate walk up the valley takes you to the sparkling glacier-fed waters of Cheakamus Lake. This is a must-do hike for anyone who enjoys hiking in nature.

What to Bring / What to Wear
We recommend you wear comfortable clothing suitable for outdoor exercise and close-toed shoes suitable for hiking.
It's always a good idea to bring a waterproof jacket or an additional layer such as a warm sweater as the mountain weather can change quickly - even on sunny days! It's also a good idea to pack sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, a snack and your camera!
We ask that you please bring your own reusable water bottle - we're working to reduce plastic waste. Did you know that Whistler has some of the cleanest and freshest tap water in the world? Our alpine-fresh water supply comes from beautiful Rainbow Lake which is fed by ancient glaciers. However, if you require, bottled water is available for purchase at our Village Office.
