Sea to Sky Trail: Brandywine Falls to Whistler Bungee Bridge Map

This shorter hike in Brandywine Falls Provincial Park links its namesake waterfall to the Whistler Bungee Bridge, where you can witness daring jumpers leaping towards the mighty Cheakamus River below. Highlights of this hike include a 70-meter waterfall that adventurer Jesse Weber vividly compares to "a creation for some kind of movie set." The stunning waterfall, vibrant forest, and family-friendly terrain make this one of the most popular hikes around Whistler.

Description

During the peak summer months, plan an early start to your day to ensure you can find parking. Leashed pets are allowed to join and there are options to shorten or lengthen your hike as desired. This route is also not the best option if you're hiking with younger children.

Depending on the source, this hike is sometimes referenced as the Brandywine Trail, Brandywine Falls Trail, or the Sea to Sky Trail.
