Whistler Golf Course 4.8k Whistler's Best Running Routes
For half of the year in Whistler, from mid November to April, jogging and trail running becomes difficult due to snow. During this time there are only a few areas of the Valley Trail system that are plowed consistently.
The beautiful 4.8k route around Whistler Golf Course is a great, scenic and convenient option to run year round, and right in the Village. Convenient and free parking can be found at the dead end of Lorimer Rd near Whistler Village. If you are staying in Whistler Village you can reach the trail via the underpass under the Sea to Sky Highway near the Conference Centre in Whistler Village.
This trail is very convenient from Whistler Village and you can easily start and finish your run from your hotel in the Village and continuously run on pedestrian only or Valley Trail paths. The map shows the 4.8k Valley Trail that runs around the Whistler Golf Course. The blue shows the Valley Trails that branch off the Valley Trail to and from the Golf Course.
As you run around this beautiful golf course you will run through a magnificent grove of ancient cedars, see jaw dropping views of Rainbow Mountain, Whistler and Blackcomb as well as Wedge Mountain in the distance. Also, with the exception of the winter months you will likely spot a bear along the trail or on the golf course. They frequent the area from April to September, especially early morning and late in the day.
