  • A very nice trail along the Cheakamus River with a suspension bridge at the midpoint of a 3.5 mile hike. Some good hills, beautiful forest, and the river was spectacular raging down the mountains...

  • The Cheakamus River Trail is about 5 km away from Whistler near the Function Junction. The trail from one side also leads to the Train Wreck site. There is a suspension bridge across the river from where you can watch and listen to the raging torrents of the river below. Be careful of the bears though as the trail leads through a thickly wooded area.
  • This river is one of the best white water kayaking runs in North America. Every year this river hosts the cheakmus pin ball race where a bunch of inflatable balls off a bridge and kayakers chase their ball down the rapids.
