Lost Lake Park Trails

Enjoy Lost Lake trails by foot or bike during the summer months, or cross country ski or snowshoe on Lost Lake Nordic Trails during the winter months with over 25 km of trails to explore and discover.

Lost Lake Park has an extensive network of multi-use hiking and biking trails maintained by the Resort Municipality of Whistler.

Hikers and beginner bikers will enjoy Lost Lake Loop, Panorama and Old Mill Road, and a variety of smooth gravel trails like Tin Pants, Molly Hogan, Gypsy Drum, Donkey Puncher, Tommy Moore and Hooktender.

Intermediate level and advanced mountain bikers will enjoy the challenge and excitement of the Zappa singletrack trails, including Fountain of Love, Pinocchio’s Furniture, Disco Boy, Dwarf Nebula, Packard Goose and the Grand Wazoo. 

Lost Lake Park and Trails are home to a large variety of wildlife, including Western Toads. Their annual migration during the summer may temporarily impact access to the lake via Lost Lake Road, the valley trail and Lost Lake Loop.


If you are riding an e-bike or other e-mobility device, make sure it’s permitted on the trails you want to ride.

Class 1 (pedal-assisted) e-bikes and electric adaptive mountain bikes are permitted on the Lost Lake trails.
Class 2 and class 3 e-bikes are classified as motorized vehicles and are not permitted on any off-road trails in Whistler.

Learn more about e-bikes at whistler.ca/ebikes.

Trails are converted, along with golf cart paths of the two adjacent golf courses, to an extensive cross-country ski trail network maintained by the Resort Municipality of Whistler.

  • Lost Lake Park features 25 kilometres of cross-country ski and snowshoe trails, which are typically open from mid-December to the end of March.  
  • The trails are not open to walkers, hikers, bikers, runners, or dogs in the winter, and a ticket or pass must be purchased for cross-country ski and snowshoe use.

Upgrades to Lost Lake Park – Fall 2021

New trail signs and maps have been installed throughout Lost Lake Park to improve wayfinding and trail names have been updated, as part of the final phase of the Master Wayfinding Strategy. The improved wayfinding will benefit both winter and summer users by streamlining trail names for easier navigation and safety from the southern entrance of the park at Lost Lake PassivHaus to the northern exit near Nicklaus North parking lot.

The trail names of this main corridor will be altered from the current designation of Lost Lake Loop and Old Mill Road, to be divided into three sections:

  • Lost Lake Trail South –Lost Lake PassivHaus to Lost Lake beach and warming hut
  • Lost Lake Loop –only the section of trail encircling the lake
  • Lost Lake Trail North – replacing the existing Old Mill Road from the North end of Lost Lake Loop to the Nicklaus North Parking lot

Additional trail name changes have been made to improve wayfinding and to provide an effortless visitor experience including:

  • Lower Panorama – divided into two smaller sections to now include Middle Panorama
  • Upper Fairways – divided into two smaller sections to now include Middle Fairways
  • Poler’s Road – divided into three sections to now include Poler’s Climb, Poler’s Traverse, and Poler’s Descent
  • Black Loop changes to Croweman’s Challenge in recognition of Eric Crowe’s many years of service and contribution to Lost Lake Nordic Trails
  • The introduction of a few smaller trail names that were previously undefined including, Fairways Connector, Vimy Hill and The Passage.

New signs will build upon the successful Valley Trail wayfinding signs installed across the network in 2018.
