Description

Lower Whistler Downhill starts pretty unassumingly by taking riders down a long grassy straightaway to the treeline. At the first corner, it crests a nearly-blind knoll that turns out to be a large floating step-down. The run-out is pretty clear and riders can send it as far down the slope as they're comfortable. Just make sure to scout your first time.

From there, the trail flies past the entrance of Dwayne Johnson along a section of wide Gravel. There's a long optional double coming up (but there's a mess of rocks in the middle, so again, scout first). Keep right at the next split for the first of three steep rock-rolls.

When Lower Whistler Downhill hits the treeline it trades in fast straightaways for tight tech. What follows is a series of rough turns with deep roots and the occasional off camber rock-slab to keep you on your toes and gripping tight on the brakes. The gnar is doable on a capable trail bike, but you'll be wishing you had more travel.

Located in the Fitzsimmons Zone, Lower Whistler Downhill starts west of Detroit Rock City and the end of Schleyer.
