2016-07-23 Finally hiked this awe-inspiring beauty atop Wedgemount Mountain, Whistler BC. The trailhead is now located at the bottom of the old trail. Parking is limited so go as early as you can. People do park on the side but this actually had caused some difficulty for me when it was time for me to leave, I had to ask someone to guide me out as the cars were parked on both side of the road making cars going in/out hard as the road is already narrow as it is. The wedgemount lake trail does not start off easy, the ascend starts off steep and keeps going up up up. The trail is very well marked going up and the nice thing about it is that you ate under the trees. The breeze of the cool air helps with the strenous uphill climb. There are still some muddy and slippery parts and this is where good hiking boots and hiking poles are necessary most especially on the last quarter part to the the trail. There is a bit of break that you can take on the second rock slide which is the halfway mark of the trail. Take your time here and relax your legs whenever possible as the trail beyond this mark gets steeper and harder. Mosquitos are everywhere so ensure you have insect repellent. Once you start your hike again, pace yourself and as mentioned it gets steeper on the way to the last quarter mark before making it to the lake. You will get a glimpse of wedgemouny fall from the halfway mark to the last quarter mark. Take it in, tale some photos/videos and catch your breath. The last quarter is by far the toughest, sketchy, steepest and yes, dangerous - so be cautious. Hiking poles will be your bestfriend and saviour so please have them available when taking on this hike. Once you have climbed and finishef the scramble, the beautiful lake awaits and all the hardwork and pain will go away at the sight of the lake. It was a true beauty and i cried, jumped for joy and hopped my way to the ridge to have a panoramic view of the majestic wedgemount lake. After taking in the beauty (an hour is not enough and i seriously can just stay in my own spot for hours) head on to the wedgemount glacier. Its another rocky scramble but not much of an elevation gain going there. And since you are already at the top, its a must to be upclose with the glacier. It took me 2 hrs 48 mins up and 2 hrs down. Be extra careful during your descend. And yes its just as hard if not harder coming down.
