This walk takes you through a beautiful forest along some wooden bridges, as well as a viewing platform that overlooks the ocean and surrounding mountains.
After taking the Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish (or hiking up!), just off the Sea to Sky Highway (HWY99), you are brought to the main lodge area where straight ahead, there is a larger viewing platform that overlooks the Squamish Valley River. To the left is the suspension bridge, which seems a bit freaky at first because you're suspended so high up in the air, however the views are extraordinary and make for a great photo! (There is an alternate route if you feel uncomfortable crossing the suspension bridge). After crossing the bridge, there is a sign pointing to the Panorama Trail. This is a 1.6km loop that takes you through the lush forest, and eventually to the Chief Overlook Platform. The day I went, it was quite cloudy so we couldn't see much of the ocean or the Chief, however we were level with the clouds so it made for some pretty cool pictures; I definitely wasn't disappointed!
If planning to do this walk throughout the winter months, you will need snowshoes to access the trail.
This walk is pretty short and relatively flat, making it available to people of all ages and fitness levels. Great idea for a date, or for a family day!
