Lost Lake, Whistler

4.6
#2 of 22 in Parks in Whistler
Get some fresh air and take the easygoing hike along paved and gravel trails to Lost Lake, a pristine lake set in dense evergreen forest. If you visit between June and September you’ll find an area for swimming, as well as plenty of barbecue spots surrounding the lake. Consider bringing a picnic and sitting on the green grass beside the water to eat. During the winter months, the lake exudes an altogether different beauty, as the paths transform into cross-country skiing trails. You can't bring dogs to the lake, but you can take them to a dog-friendly area nearby. Use our Whistler driving holiday planner to add Lost Lake and other attractions to your Whistler vacation plans.

  • A great hideout for tanning or swimming. As for cycling or hiking, it offers quite a few routes for cyclists to venture, and loop trails for hikers to stroll around.
  • Snow shoeing on a beautiful winter day. Marvelous.
  • It is a very nice lake with nice trails for bicycles, lots of friendly dogs on leach too
  • I miss Lost Lake every single day. Such a nice moment.
  • Difficult to get to if you're not aware of the trails or taking the bus.

Where to stay in Whistler

Whistler caters to guests with a wide selection of accommodations, although budget travelers might struggle to find more affordable options. If you visit Whistler during the ski season, stay in the southern section of town, closest to the main ski lifts. You can also beat the crowds of the town proper and stay farther south in Whistler Creek, where the shores of Alta Lake meet the Creekside gondola. It's worth booking early no matter what time of year you visit, as the town can get incredibly busy even during summer.
