Brandywine Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This trail is located south of Whistler. If you are searching for a pleasant ride for the whole family, look no further than this 8.6 km (5.16 miles) loop. Before you actually start the ride, though, you must take the time to visit the falls for which this park is known. Spilling over a lip of hard volcanic rock, it literally pours into a picture-perfect basin like water from a pitcher. Though no massive, it is one of the most picturesque falls along the Sea to Sky corridor. Beginning in Brandywine Falls Provincial Park, this ride starts with a short, stiff climb, and then rolls its way past several marshy ponds with views toward Metal Dome and Brandywine Mountains t the northwest."

Some of the trail was difficult for us to follow- we took the "unmarked trail." But we didn't ever stray too far from the actual trail. Beautiful views of Swim Lake and on towards the Cheakamus Bridge where two rivers collide and we sat awhile sunning ourselves on the riverbank rocks. The route we took, starting out towards Brandywine Falls and then up the unmarked trail was difficault at first and probably better designed for dayhikers but after the first 2 km, it became easier to ride. The trip out from the bridge was smooth sailing and we were glad to have saved it for the end. We went in August when it was pretty warm out and made sure to take our insect repellant. Still, there were lots of bugs buzzing around in the still forest. Great trail overall. We will go back when we are a little more experienced.
