Starting from Creekside, take a tour of three of Whistler’s beautiful lakes – don’t forget your swimsuit! Head south towards the neighbourhood of Bayshores, crossing over Highway 99 at Lake Placid Road. Follow the Valley Trail to Alpha Lake Park. There’s a great dog park here for your pooch to run around off leash if you’ve brought your four-legged companion. After a break to check out the stunning scenery, hop back on the trail and go north towards Nita Lake for your next stop. Pop into Nita Lake Lodge for lunch in the restaurant or a drink in the lounge, before getting back on the trail, passing through the Creekside neighbourhood, Whistler’s first residential area.
Your final lake is Whistler’s most popular, Alta Lake. With three parks for swimming and other activities, Alta Lake is always a hub of activity. You’ll pass two of the parks, Wayside and Lakeside. Wayside is a great spot for kayaking and there are rentals available. Further north Lakeside has canoe rentals, a campground and is a favourite for families.
When you’re ready to leave, you can either take the same trail you arrived on or do a loop around the Alta Vista neighbourhood, making sure to cut over to Creekside once you’re back at Nita Lake.
