Whistler Hiking Rental BlogApril 17th, 2019: Spring in Whistler is great for getting outside into the wilderness.  Lower elevation trails like Whistler Train Wreck, Cheakamus River, the Flank Trail, Parkhurst Ghost Town, Brandywine Falls and the Sea to Sky Trail emerge from the snowy winter.  Few people venture out in April, and you will almost certainly have places like Parkhurst and Cheakamus River to yourself.  The often forgotten Flank Trail has and endless number of perfect places for a tent overlooking Whistler far below and Blackcomb Mountain and Whistler Mountain directly across.

This year the snow is slow to recede, however in the third week of April the temperature is rising and the rain is washing away the snow.  Expect some lingering snow on the Flank Trail for a couple more weeks.  Parkhurst Ghost Town is a wonderful place to visit in the summer, but in the spring it is particularly beautiful.  First, having a ghost town all to yourself, which you likely will have in April and May, is spooky and serene.  Sleeping under the stars, high up above Green Lake in Parkhurst Ghost Town on a warm spring evening is something you won't soon forget.  Too early in the season for mosquitoes and fellow hikers, spring days often get up into the low 20's(70's farenheit)This forgotten little corner of Whistler becomes a little hidden paradise.  Just a short walk from Parkhurst down to the end of Green Lake, Green River begins. The flat clearing where the river begins you will see a flat clearing, and another extraordinary little piece of Whistler history.  This was the location of the locally famous Toad Hall hippy camp from the 70's.  Probably best memorialized by the iconic photo of the residents posing while wearing ski boots and little else.  You can buy a large print of this piece of Whistler history at the Whistler Museum.
