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.
