Whistler Visitor Centre Staff Tips for Fall 2013 - Favourite Fall Hikes
I went hiking on the Ancient Cedars Trail last week and it was just beautiful up there! The trail starts at the end of the logging road on the Cougar Mountain turn-off (10 to 15 minutes drive up the access road - bumpy but manageable). The hike is approximately 2-3 hours in total. You will find amazing trees and abundant mushrooms in this old growth forest. I recommend this hike during fall because of the low elevation and the nice colors of the trees. - Anne, Visitor Centre Agent
Fall is a great time of year to go hiking. Foodies will love walking the Interpretative Forest Trail and the Ancient Cedars Loop for the chance to see a wide variety of mushrooms including Pine, Chanterelles and Morels*. -Shannon, Visitor Centre Supervisor
The Whistler Golf Course cart trail is now open to the public for walking. Dogs are allowed on leash only - this is strictly enforced. - Renee, Visitor Centre Agent

*Not all wild mushrooms are edible – some are extremely poisonous! Don’t go munching on mushrooms you find in the forest unless you are an expert at identifying them. You can go to one of Whistler’s restaurants to sample them safely, or head to the annual Fungus Among Us festival to learn more!
