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.

It is surrounded by ridiculously beautiful scenery with mountains, lakes and loads of possible hiking trails; The town’s slogan is “guaranteed rugged.” It may have achieved the slogan as being the start of the road for the historical Cayoosh Gold Rush, but it’s equaly appropriate now with Lillooet being a great base for adventures. We visited as part of our mini road trip…
