    Jane Lakes Trail

    The Jane Lakes Trail is a lightly trafficked 10.0 km out-and-back hiking route through the Whistler Interpretive forest that climbs uphill through dense tree cover to arrive at two beautifully scenic lakes. Although the trail itself is largely forested, there are some nice views of the surrounding area, including an awesome picture of Black Tusk near the start of the hike. With a moderate elevation gain and a few sections of technical trail, this is a great weekend hike for casual and more experienced hikers.

    Route Description for Jane Lakes Trail

    The Jane Lakes Trail is a beautiful hiking route near Whistler that features a moderate uphill climb through the forest and only receives a light amount of foot traffic, making it ideal if you are looking for a bit of peace and quiet while out on the trail. Largely blanketed in dense tree cover, this trail does offer some amazing views, particularly of nearby Black Tusk but also of the tranquil waters of the Jane Lakes.

    Trekking up to these woodland bodies of water will take hikers through the Whistler Interpretive Forest, first along an old logging road, before transitioning to a dirt hiking path that contains a few more technical sections with roots and rocks. Reaching East Jane Lake, hikers should follow the trail signs to make their way around the water on a route leading to West Jane Lake. After enjoying the woodland landscape and going for a quick swim, head back along the same path to wrap up your journey on the Jane Lakes Trail.
