After the chairlift the real fun begins.
Once you’re at the Village, you can use the washroom facilities inside Trapper’s, grab a burger or get yourself a trail map. From there, head up the Standish Chairlift.
Usually the hiking begins from the Village, but running Standish chairlift in summer (weekends only in September and October) is new and very much appreciated by those hiking with wee ones.
Sunshine Meadows Trail
It’s less than a five minute walk from Standish Chairlift to Standish Lookout. But as soon as you get off the chairlift, you have a few different trail options for Sunshine Meadows.
For first time visitors, I recommend walking down to the Standish Lookout. Not only does that place you on Continental Divide, but from there you can see Rock Isle Lake and Laryx Lake clearly.
