The Whistler Train Wreck Trail, Whistler

(4.6/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Take an interesting hike at The Whistler Train Wreck Trail, a route based around a mysterious derailed train crash thought to have occurred in the 1950s. Over the ensuing years, it was turned into an artful walking spot by the local community. The trail is typified by attractive verdant scenery and interesting, vibrant graffiti on the train cars. You'll find an excellent bike trail around the wreck trail, so bring your wheels if you’d prefer to see the route this way. The whole path is about 3 km (1.8 mi) and begins with views over Cheakamus River.
