Wedgmount Lake Trail – Whistler, BC, Canada
Wedgemount Lake is a turquoise-coloured alpine lake located in Garibaldi Provincial Park of British Columbia, Canada. It is situated below Wedge Mountain, Parkhurst Mountain, Rethel Mountain, and Mount Weart. Meltwater from Wedgemount Glacier and Armchair Glacier feeds the lake, whereas Wedgemount Creek is the outflow from the lake.
Hard trail with beautiful view, from Parking lot to Wedgemount Lake: Length, 7 km; suggested time, 4 to 6 hours one way; elevation change, 1,200 metres. The upper part of the trail provides a view of a waterfall where Wedgemount Creek tumbles down for almost 300 metres in a white spray.
The last part of the trail climbs steeply up a boulder strewn slope which can be slippery. This trail is steep and strenuous, but offers very rewarding views from the top.
There are no garbage facilities, so always pack out what you pack in!
