Shadow Lake Loop – Whistler Hikes

Shadow Lake Loop – Whistler Hikes

The Shadow Lake Loop is a super easy walk close to the Sea to Sky Highway between Squamish and Whistler.

This is part of the new-ish Sea to Sky trail, which is part of the massive Trans Canada Trail. I think it is a great little stop off on route to Whistler. Just be…

The wild area stretches for about 7-8 blocks where it is hard to believe you’re in the middle of a residential area! In 2018, the Vancouver Park Board and the Still Moon Arts Society worked together to make this area more accessible, building a…
