Whether your canine companion is into lengthy journeys and strenuous alpine excursions or spontaneous relaxing strolls in the forest, being able to share a beautiful day in the mountains with your favourite pup is what having a dog in Whistler is all about.
The trail to the McLaurin’s Crossing suspension bridge over Cheakamus River in the Whistler Interpretive Forest has rolling ups and downs along the bank of the river, with a neat historical suspension bridge to cross at the end. Your dog will enjoy the sounds and smells in the coastal temperate rainforest.
The Ancient Cedars Trail is a hidden gem. You need a 4×4 vehicle to get to the trailhead, but if you can make it in along the bumpy service road and hike up, you’ll be impressed by the view of the Soo Valley. The giant cedar trees that the trail is named for are incredible.
The Flank Trail is a long trail, stretching across the entire Whistler Valley from north to south. There is quite a bit of elevation gain and some fantastic viewpoints along the way. There are multiple entry points to the trail, so you can pick and choose what sections of the trail to do.
