Lava Lake Loop – Whistler Hikes

Lava Lake Loop – Whistler Hikes

The Lava Lake Loop is a fun, easy hike in the gorgeous Brandywine Falls Provincial Park. I have visited Brandywine Falls a few times before (it is amaaaazing in winter, covered in ice) but I had never been on the longer trails around the park.

Nairn Falls – Whistler Waterfalls

Nairn Falls is yet another amazing waterfall, just 29km North of Whistler. You do need to go on a mini hike to reach the Nairn Falls viewpoints. However the walk is pretty easy so the effort-to-view ratio is fantastic. I am pretty sure this waterfall would always be interesting; But in springtime, when the snow from the surrounding mountains starts to melt, it is truly dramatic. We stopped here on our road trip from Lillooet back to Vancouver. Marc and…
