High Point

A good mid-entry level loop for Whistler XC trails. A step beyond Lost Lake trails, with lots of easy opportunities to peel out if you're getting tired. A few short but grunty climbs, with moderately easy (for Whistler) descents. The final trail, It's Business Time (aka Duncan's Trail) does get a bit more technical and is rated a black. There's the option to skip out after Hi-Hi and descend down Far Side trail between East Side Main FSR road and the river (a fun, fast and flowy descent). Approx time for this loop would be 1.5 hours, more if you're stopping, less if you're hammering.

The Team Arbutus Ladies out for a ride in Whistler a few weeks back. Fall time riding is the best. Thanks to Arbutus Routes, Yeti Cycles,...

Small tree down across trail, can ride over or around. Too large for hand saw (unless it is a big hand saw or bow saw). A long span across the bridge, no damage to the bridge.

*COUGAR WARNING* Multiple sightings in the High Side area over the past week, suggest riding with a friend and maybe avoid High Side for a few days. There's been a lot of deer in the area too so it's probably just following dinner around!

There was a lot more water on the trail today compared with the last few days. Difficult to keep your feet dry with the puddles getting so deep on the last 1/4 of the trail towards the Microwave Access Road.

cleared out all the low drainage clogs to get rid of as much standing water and puddles as possible, holding up well in the wet weather. a couple sections require some more drainage work before the snow comes.
