The Sea-To-Sky Trail (61 mi./6500) has majestic views of the Tantalus range and winds down to Whistler ski resort.

Owl Creek To D Arcy: In the fall of 1994, the Sea to Sky trail crew began building in this area to prepare for the opening of over 40 km of low-level use roads and trails slated to open in the summer of 1995. Over 23 km of fresh trail was brushed and cleared between Gramsons and DArcy through Birdenhead Lake Provincial Park. Directions - follow Hwy 99 past Whistler to Gramsons. The hike starts on 4x4 road logging road. Parking is available at the trailhead.

The trail starts at the Sun Wolf Resort located in Brackendale, about 60 km North of West Vancouver. If you are spending the night, there is a campground at nearby Alice Lake Park.

There is a train from Vancouver to Whistler for only $20 (604-984-5246).

Overall, Sea-To-Sky Trail is the 2nd most popular hiking trail of all 18 hikes in British Columbia.
