View Howe Sound, the Stawamus Chief and all of Squamish from the sky
This 1.6 km long loop trail takes you through coastal forest, Alaskan Blueberry bushes and granite outcroppings. Viewpoints with handcrafted cedar benches dot the trail for rests with a view. The Panorama trail has an easy elevation grade of approximately 8-10% allowing people of all ages and fitness levels to complete it in under an hour.
Halfway through the trail is the Chief Overlook Platform: a cantilevered deck that juts out over a sheer drop and offers majestic views of the ocean and surrounding mountains. The Panorama Trail is open year-round. During the winter months, you will need snowshoes to access the trail.
Drive south from the Adventure Centre on Highway 99. Park at the Sea to Sky Gondola Base Camp and ride the gondola to the Summit Lodge. The trail begins here.

Keep in mind this route requires a gondola ride to the trailhead.
In snowier seasons, the snow can be worn and packed, so snow shoes or spikes would be a plus.
