This beautiful forest and its atmospheric grove of massive ancient trees is well worth a visit, it’s about a 20 min drive from central Whistler village. To get to the site you face a drive up a 2 mile steep service track, which is very...More

Overall, I liked the hike. The road up to the bottom of the trail was much rougher than I'd thought from reading descriptions. Our main mistake was not taking bug spray as the mesquitos were all over us. Other than that, it was all good....More

This would’ve been a nice little hike for some light uphill exercise as it wasn’t too strenuous, and the ancient cedars at the end of the trail are indeed magnificent, but we spent almost the entire length of the trail trying to run away from/fight...More

The Ancient Cedars Loop is one of Whistler's prime hiking attractions. It is accessed from Highway 99 going north taking the left turn off onto the 16 mile forestry service road indicated by the sign "Cougar Mountain", which will be visible just past the north...More

This was a short hike and climb through a tranquil forest. The drive up to the parking lot on a forest road was dicey, rocky and pitted, but we managed to make it there in our van. Lovely creek and surroundings along the way made...More

This road is a service road, which means it isn't a smooth and carefree drive. You will put your defensive driving skills to use on the trek to the parking area for the hike. Hold on to your seat and be prepared for an adventure....More

The logging road to get here is pretty hairy, but once you arrive, this is an incredibly well-signposted and maintained trail. It is a lovely walk through the woods; gentle incline on the way to the cedars grove. Once there, there are some interesting plaques...More

If you want to have some quiet hours and are happy to be surrounded by ancient to younger trees, this is the right walk for you. Only disadvantage: you have to be a good and driver to take your car through the sometimes challenging road....More

First you have to drive 4+km up a gravel service road which would be better suited to a 4x4 vehicle. Watch out for ATVs which also use this road. The hike itself once parked is only 5km and we thought it would be a nice...More
