Alpine flowers are blooming now. It will not last long.
The first 2/3 part of the high note trail is very good, but the rest 1/3 is kind of boring. Next time will try the half note trail.

    Can we do it the other way, start at the bottom and hike up? Then take the gondola down?

      I see that this trail is open from July-October. I am going to be in Whistler the first week of November. Any insight on what the trail would be like/if the chairlift will be open?

      Thanks :)

        Hiked the High Note trail yesterday (August 03, 2015), was a beautiful day. the trail was very dry no snow spotted anywhere. Loved this hike! Was so beautiful and scenic. The first half of the trail was the most scenic, so if you prefer you could take the half note trail back to the roundhouse or you can continue on and finish the high note. The trail can be technical in spots and the beginning of the trail is fairly steep downhill with loose dirt and gravel (for those new to hiking). You do have to take the chairlift up to the start of the hike so if you are afraid of heights this one might not be for you. I highly recommend doing this hike!!

            Is there anyway to access the High Note Trail without riding the Peak Charilift? We have 1yr old in a frame pack and are unable to ride the chairlift.

              Want to do this hike when I'm in Whistler on the 25th but I have vertigo and some parts of it looked on the video like they might be too steep for me. Any insights?

                Hiked this trail on July 27. The weather was fantastic and only the tiniest patch of snow not far from the start of the trail (maybe 15 feet, well trod and easy to walk on). The views were amazing, as expected. Please note that unless you walk to the top of Whistler you will have to buy a $50+ lift pass. We made the most of it by taking the Peak to Peak gondola to Blackcomb and then two more chair lifts to the village.

                  Went up just me and my boyfriend today, July 5th 2014. Still quite a lot of snow, parts of the path are entirely covered and we had to do a little searching/going off trail to find it. Mind you it was also very cloudy and hard to see. We ended up climbing up the mountain on all fours in the snow near a cliff to try to find the trail again. Would be a beautiful hike on a sunny day, probably best to avoid on a cloudy, colder day like today.

                    Any update on the chairlift & trail ?

                    Wish to do it this weekend,
                    but do not know whether there is chairlift open for hikers & trail condition.

                      One of the best hikes I've ever done. The views were incredible! The hike was pretty easy too... you take the chairlift to the top and most of it is downhill. There were 4 of us doing this and we were back at the Gondola in under 3 hours.
