A train transporting freshly cut logs derailed in the 1950’s and indirectly created a new treasure around Whistler. Boxcars rolled and tumbled through a thick forest where seven cars are now resting. The abandoned pieces are now a mix of human error and ingenuity as this wreck is now an open mural for artists and destination for tourist/outdoor thrill-seeker alike.

Crossing over a wobbly suspension bridge, above a raging river to abandoned boxcars is entirely worth this little hike! No snowshoes are needed (during March), and it is a great little trail for all ages. Overall, the trail is safe, easy to access (the suspension bridge was constructed in 2016) and a nice way to kill time while adventuring not too far from civilization.
