Running Whistler's Lost Lake Trails
This is a nice 5k route that runs from Whistler Village out and around Lost Lake and back. Lost Lake, along with the Whistler Golf Course 4.8k trail run are the most convenient and beautiful trail runs in Whistler. Both can be run right from Whistler Village and both have amazing views. Depending on where you are in the Village you can access it via many different directions. The blue dotted lines indicate Valley Trails that lead to Lost Lake. The red dotted lines indicate the actual 5k distance.
The Lost Lake 5k takes you around the beautiful Lost Lake. The wide trail runs around this very picturesque lake through a wonderful forest. This area has been massively developed into a massive network of biking trails which can also be used as running trails. The sheer number of the trails allows them to remain relatively serene and devoid of people despite their popularity. There are a seemingly infinate number of variations on running routes in the Lost Lake area.
Lost Lake is very popular with bears and during the summer months a bear encounter is very likely. Whistler bears are very wary of people, so if you encounter one on the trail, they will almost always run into the forest when they notice you. Keep your distance and make some noise and give them the opportunity to make their exit.
