Cheakamus River is the beautiful, crashing and turquoise coloured river that flows from Cheakamus Lake, through the Cheakamus Valley to Daisy Lake.  Also a popular kayaking route, the main attraction to Cheakamus River is the wonderful and quite extensive network of hiking and biking trails that run along either side of it. Several trails run throughout the forest around the enormous 70 kilometre length of Cheakamus River

  • Very easily accessible, park at various places
  • Public transit stop just steps from the trailhead
  • Connect to Logger's Lake & Whistler Train Wreck
  • Ideal trail running route & dog friendly
  • An easy & family friendly trail
  • Many great spots for a picnic
  • Usually quiet & has little elevation change!
  • Trails are not overly exciting
  • Not as impressive as other Whistler trails
  • No camping allowed in the area

Trails such as the Cheakamus Lake trail, the Whistler Train Wreck trail and the Sea to Sky Trail.  For the most part, however, if you are talking about the Cheakamus River trails you are likely talking about the Farside and Riverside trails in Whistler's Interpretive Forest.  Eight kilometres south of Whistler Village and surrounding the recently constructed neighbourhood of Cheakamus Crossing is Whistler Interpretive Forest.  This beautiful forest surrounds the Cheakamus River and has been cut and replanted in several areas in the past decades. Hiking and biking trails have sprung up over the years making the area a wonderful place to explore. Unfortunately, the Interpretive Forest is day-use only, no camping is permitted.  The main highlights of the Interpretive Forest are the beautiful Cheakamus River trails, and the extraordinary Logger's LakeLogger's Lake, just a short hike from the Cheakamus River suspension bridge, sits within a 10000 year old, extinct volcano and is a hiking destination on its own.  Logger's Lake is a beautiful, hidden hidden paradise for swimming.  There are several excellent vantage points to see the river and the amazing Cheakamus River suspension bridge is one of the best.

Located at one end of the Farside and Riverside trails(see the map below), there is even a parking area nearby.  This is also the parking area for Logger's Lake, making it a beautiful starting point to hike both area in an afternoon.  There are several excellent places to park to begin hiking or biking around the Cheakamus River. You can park at various places within sight of the river on either side of it just steps from a hiking trail. The Whistler Interpretive Forest trailhead parking just off the Sea to Sky Highway is large, easy to find and adjacent to the Sea to Sky Trail.  This is an ideal place to park if you are biking the trails. If you are hiking, however, you might want to drive a couple hundred metres past and then turn left onto Cheakamus Lake Road.  This gravel road almost immediately forks. Continuing strait takes you along the left side of Cheakamus River and taking the right fork follows the opposite side. There are excellent road and trail signs at this junction and the ones further along.
