Cheakamus Lake Trail – Whistler Hikes

Cheakamus Lake Trail – Whistler Hikes

The Cheakamus Lake Trail is a family-friendly hike close to Whistler that finishes by a beautiful glacial lake. When we visited, the forest was especially gorgeous with sunbeams lighting up the mist. If you need to get outside, but can’t quite face an epic hike, this is a fantastic option.

The trail finishes at a fire lookout with a cool building, a historic fire-locator and epic views. I had made plans to go hiking with the lovely Lisa from West…
