Wedgemount Lake Trail

Topographical map 92-J-2 1:50,000

This spectacular glacial lake is circled by Wedgemount and Armchair Glaciers. Wedge Mountain, 2,891 metres, the highest peak in the park, lies to the south.  This is a popular destination for mountaineers. 

Access:

Turn right off Hwy 99, 13 km north of Whistler. You must cross the BC Rail train track to access the road. Use caution as this is an uncontrolled railway crossing. The parking lot is located 2 km from Hwy 99 along a Forest Service road.

Camping fees are in effect year-round and must be paid in full before entering the park. Proof of payment must be carried at all times while in the park. 

Trail Information:

This is a strenuous hike.  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 when wet. This trail is steep and strenuous but offers very rewarding views from the top.

Camping/Overnight stay:

The camping areas and the shelter at Wedgemount Lake are operated on a first-come, first-served basis. A reservation guarantees you a space, but not a specific spot or tentpad.  Camping is permitted in designated areas only.

All campers must make a reservation through the Discover Camping Reservation Service year-round and must produce proof of reservation – failure to do so can result in an eviction and fines.
