Brandywine Falls

Distance: 1.5km
Elevation: 35m
Time: 0.5-1h

Difficulty Rating:

Brandywine Falls hike is only a stone throw from the parking lot. Who would imagine that a 70m cascading waterfall that eventually fills Daisy Lake is tucked just out of sight? This wide, flat trail is also perfect for inexperienced hikers in the Whistler region.

Getting there

From Whistler, drive south along the Sea to Sky highway (Highway 99) until you see the turnoff for Brandywine Falls. Turn left into the parking lot and – hopefully – find a spot. There are picnic tables and outhouses here.

Detailed Description

The hike is wonderful for families and those looking for a breath of fresh air. The wide, flat trail meanders for under a kilometer towards the viewpoint for the falls. You will start by crossing a bridge over the Brandywine Creek, and then walk through a dense forest. You will cross a set of train tracks, and shortly thereafter reach the viewpoint for Brandywine Falls. This 70-meter waterfalls are breathtaking, as are the rock features that exist around it. To the left of the falls is a spherical roof carved out of the rock, with trees growing right above it!

Continue a little way more to reach the second viewpoint. This one gives another perspective on the falls, and lets you look down to Daisy Lake. Return the way you came.
