Description

This classic Whistler ride has great access from the village and proves quite difficult from the get-go. However there are some ride-around options along the way for the harder obstacles. If you start the ride and are struggling, it would be best to turn around. The next exit point is at the halfway point and the trail is loaded with features and tight technical rock sections. Additionally, there are a number of very high bridges that are options for those with more skill.

The ride is also entirely in the trees so it is a nice and shaded ride on a hot day. Don't let the elevation profile and distance fool you, this is a challenging ride that will definitely have you working up a sweat.

Have fun and challenge yourself, but always ride within your ability.
