Brought to you by the Whistler Museum
The Whistler Museum's Nature Walking Tour takes place in Lost Lake Park on the Nature Trail that starts at the Lost Lake PassivHaus and follows Blackcomb Creek. Join us to discover more about the species that call Whistler home and how all things in nature, including us, are interconnected.
The audio and videos at the top of each slide match up with 10 different numbered stops along the 500 metre trail. We encourage you to watch the videos while you’re out exploring the trail or you can opt for the audio (they are the same content). The videos will link you to YouTube, so if you need to conserve your data then audio might be the best option. At the end of the trail you can either turn around and head back the way you came, or turn left onto the wide, dirt path that takes you back to the PassivHaus at the entrance of Lost Lake Park.
In winter months, this loop is reserved exclusively for cross country skiers and snowshoers, and trail passes are required to access Lost Lake Park trails from December to March.
