Singing Pass 22k - Trail Running in Garibaldi Park


Singing Pass 22k - Challenging Trail RunningFor pure scenery and enjoyability, the Roundhouse to Whistler Village via Singing Pass is hard to beat.  22km and all of it up and down.  Takes about 2-3 hours and of course only free of snow and doable when the alpine opens for hiking in Whistler.  If the High Note trail is open(July to October), then this route should be free enough of snow to run.  If you don't want to pay for the gondola, you can do this route in reverse for free by taking the Singing Pass Trail up from near the Whistler Gondola and return via the Whistler Gondola (they don't check for tickets when downloading).

Walk out of the Gondola and past the Peak to Peak building, up a gravel slope about 50 metres.  On your left you will see a trailhead.  Sometimes it is marked and sometimes not.  It is marked on the Whistler hiking map they have in the Roundhouse and in the Gondola buildings.  The trail is marked as #3 Harmony Lake Trail.  At the trailhead you should be looking down to the big snow making reservoir in the distance.  You want to follow the trail past it to the left.  This trail then leads into the #5 High Note Trail to Flute Summit.  At Flute Summit follow the signs to Singing Pass and then the signs to Whistler Village via Singing Pass.

The signs on this route are poorly laid out and confusing so (when looking at trail signs) aim for Flute Summit and then Singing Pass in Garibaldi Park, then Whistler Village.

This is the Trailhead Located Just Past the Peak to Peak Building - the snow making reservoir is visible middle-left in the picture.  The trail runs past this to the left.

Singing Pass 22k - Parking Directions


Free Parking for Singing PassParking for Russet Lake/Singing Pass is convenient located in Whistler Village in Lot 4.  Parking is very well organized and central in Whistler Village, so as you drive into Whistler Village by either Village Gate Boulevard or Lorimer Road, just look for the parking lot signs.  From the highway, turn onto either Lorimer Rd or Village Gate, then in two blocks you will come to Blackcomb Way.  From Village Gate turn left to see the entrance to the four huge, connected parking lots(Lot 1, Lot 2, Lot 3 and Lot 4).  From Lorimer Rd, you can continue past Blackcomb Way and find a more direct, side entrance to Lot 4 (right off of Lorimer Rd).  Make sure to pay close attention to where you can and can't park overnight.  See images and map below for directions to the lot 4 overnight parking for Singing Pass.

Singing Pass 22k - Trailhead Directions


Russet Lake Path to TrailheadRusset Lake Trailhead Sign to Garibaldi ParkThe Singing Pass trailhead is located about .8km up Whistler mountain. To find it walk up the broad stairs, past the Dubh Lihn Gate Pub, towards the main bus stop.

At the top of the stairs turn right just before the bus stop you will see a gravel road winding up Whistler Mountain running parallel to the chiarlift.

Walk up this road for about five minutes, when you see the large water tower on your left, you should see the Singing Pass trailhead sign just past that on your left.
