Alta Lake and Green Lake 17k Trail Run in Whistler

Alta Lake & Green Lake 17k - Whistler Trail Running

This is a beautiful 17k figure 8 trail run which extends off of the Alta Lake 7.7k, then continues on to pass along the massive and appropriately named Green Lake for 9k returning to the start and centre of the figure 8, at Lorimer Rd.  Beautiful views above the Whistler Golf Club.  Almost constant panoramic Green Lake Boardwalk Viewviews of Whistler, Blackcomb and Wedge mountains.  A little old growth forest of massive Western Redcedars, and beautiful views of Alta and Green Lakes.  This trail, like the Whistler Golf Course 4.8k and the Alta Lake 7.7k is accessible directly from Whistler Village, or from the convenient and free parking at the end of Lorimer Rd, just a 5 minute drive from anywhere in Whistler.  You can access this route directly from Whistler Village via the pedestrian and car underpass off of Whistler Way.  If you walk between Buffalo Bills and the Conference Centre you will come to Whistler Way and see this underpass under the Sea to Sky Highway.  This is where the Valley Trail in Whistler exits the Village heading south.  Walking/biking/running under the underpass you will come to the Whistler Golf Course parking lot and clubhouse with the Valley Trail branching both left and right.

Printer, smartphone and tablet friendly.  Designed to fit standard printers and copiers.  To print: Right click on the map below, save image as, save to desktop, then open the image and print on standard size printer paper.  Cell coverage is reliable everywhere in Whistler so you will be able to access the internet if you have a data plan, however saving this map to your smartphone or tablet may be a good idea as there are a few turns you may miss along the route.

You can access this route directly from Whistler Village via the pedestrian and car underpass off of Whistler Way.  If you walk between Buffalo Bills and the Conference Centre you will come to Whistler Way and see this underpass under the Sea to Sky Highway.  This is where the Valley Trail in Whistler exits the Village heading south.  Walking/biking/running under the underpass you will come to the Whistler Golf Course parking lot and clubhouse with the Valley Trail branching both left and right.  On the map below the underpass is located under "Crystal Lodge".  Here you will find a nice mapboard showing the Valley Trail and the Sea to Sky Trail(both trails follow the same route in this section of Whistler).  The Valley Trail is wide, with two lanes divided by a yellow line and with frequent directional signs, so once you are on it it is easy to follow.  If you turn left and follow the Valley Trail along the edge of the Golf Course you will conned to the Valley Trail shown in the red dotted line below.
