Route Description for Brandywine Falls Trail Loop

The Brandywine Falls Trail Loop is a route packed with highlights and because of this, some areas, especially around the falls, can be very busy with visitors. Additionally, the initial stretch of the trail travels along a service road, so hikers should be alert in case there is any traffic. These concerns aside, the trail offers two amazing lookouts over Brandywine Falls and Daisy Lake to the south, as well as the opportunity to cross over the Whistler Bungee Bridge with the rushing waters of the Cheakamus River below. There is a lot to see on this intermediate length hike, making it a great option for a half-day trip in the outdoors around Whistler.

Setting out from the parking area near the Cal Cheak Campground, follow the service road south and cross over the Cheakamus River. From here, continue straight along the trail until you reach the bungee bridge. Take a few moments to watch the jumpers as they descend towards the rushing waters below before crossing over the river and continuing along the trail.

Keep on the path as it winds through Brandywine Provincial Park before arriving at a junction to the left that leads towards the two viewpoints. Take in the amazing views of the cascading falls, making your way to the vantage point looking south over Daisy Lake, before working back to the main trail and following it left to continue on the loop. From here, hikers will follow the trail as it cuts through the centre of the park to once again cross over the Cheakamus River, completing the Brandywine Falls Trail Loop.
