The Whistler Train Wreck Hike
Location: Just south of Function Junction, off Whistler Quarry Road (near the Olympic Village)
Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
Time: Approximately an hour round trip, plus time to visit the site
Elevation Gain: 100 feet
Mileage: 1.25 miles, round trip
Overall impression: This was an easy family hike (I recommend this hike for kids 6 or older) that brought us out of the town and into the forest during our Whistler visit. There is a lot of beauty in this area of Canada!
If you’re looking for something completely different to see and do while in Whistler, this hike should make your list!
While most people hike for fresh air, tranquility, and appreciation for nature, how would you feel hiking to a site littered with metal box cars, paint, and public art?
Welcome to the Whistler Train Wreck Hike. At this site, graffiti-painted, mangled train cars lay tossed about in an old growth forest, a somewhat eerie sight to see.
