Cheakamus River Hike

The Whistler Train Wreck Trail is named for a train wreck that occurred on the banks of the Chesameake River many decades ago. Seven train cars lay scattered in the forest and have become a popular hiking destination for outdoor lovers.

Over the years, locals have transformed the wrecked cars into veritable artworks. They've even built a bike park in the wreck's vicinity. The trail to the wreck is scenic and provides stunning views of the river and hilly terrain. The trail is only a few miles, so it's not especially difficult for hikers. However, the trail's markings are not always clear, so be sure to bring along a map so you don't get lost in the woods.
