This is the best place for visiting hikers to begin. The backbone of the park is the extensive network of well-maintained trails leading from Whistler village and are used for cross-country skiing in the winter and hiking for the rest of the year. There are many single track diversions into the woods for mountain bikers along the way, which are generally technically moderate. Lost Lake Park also includes great swimming during the summer and a mountain bike full dirt jumping area as well as Shaler’s Bike Land, which is a trial centre perfect for learning how to get the bike up, over and along logs and other obstacles.
