Alta & Green Lake 17k Whistler Running Routes
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 views 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 4.3k 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. Print this excellent whistler.com map shown above or get one from almost anywhere in Whistler Village.

Excellent signs direct you after you park your car. You will immediately see a Valley Trail sign that points to Rainbow Park one way, Meadow Park another, and Whistler Village a third way. Follow the trail sign that aims for Whistler Village and in about one minute you will disappear into the forest and see the golf course. The trail runs continuously around the beautiful Whistler Golf Club (bear right at the first junction).
