      Function Junction is the hub of the Cheakamus trail area. The topography is defined by the Cheakamus river watershed and Cheakamus lake. There is parking & a map kiosk adjacent to the Highway 99 stoplight at the Riverside trail head.

      The area offers multi-use trails, interpretive signage, a rather stunning suspension bridge, river views and evident volcanic activity. With the addition of the Cheakamus Crossing neighbourhood following the 2010 Olympics, this area has become extremely popular and well used by many different user groups. Expect to encounter families with young children, dog walkers, trail runners, hikers, and other bikers at any time of the day and around any corner. Always ride in control, leave your headphones at home, and always greet other users with a smile, hello and a thank you.

      Food and beverage options abound in Function Junction just across the highway, and the Whistler Brewery is a great place for a post ride drink If you need bike parts or service, Function also has a number of bike shops to help you out.
