Sweet little secret trail. The best way to do this is If you have a buddy. Drop off one car near the bmx track and then go down this trail and climb up sea to sky trail back to the bmx park. Highly recommend but hard to lap.

I absolutely love this trail. One of my favourites in Whistler. Great features, tough climbs - a real all rounder trail. Have yet to ride it clean but will be proud when I do! Check it out!

For those curious: it takes about 15 minutes to reach the trailhead climbing the microwave access road from the valley trail.

Also, amazing work done recently - just the right mix of polish and grit. Huge thanks to the trail builders.

Awesome new tweaks to the trail, nice work WORCA trail crew! The changes have made riding the trail smoother and faster.

If you've previously ridden this trail and found it a fraction too difficult, it's worth checking it out now.

WHAT A SICK TRAIL! Nothing could be done to make it better. Well thought and well built. Great introduction to double black commitment and speed, but with easy run outs. It only sucks that there is no easy way to lap it.

Avoid if you prefer riding gravel road over old school trail. Good warm-up for Runaway Train. Winding intermediate trail with lots of ups and downs. No difficult features.

Don’t be fooled by the green status. This trail is as fun as you make it.

A zippy way to get up to high side etc and a fun flowy one to ride down.

Be mindful and respectful of hikers

This was my first black trail in whistler when I rode it last summer.

Certainly not for the feint of heart but very rewarding for advanced riders with some great viewpoints.

Chubby5000 is spot on. Though I made the mistake of linking from trash and going up it. Getting up those huge gully's and rock rolls....not so much fun.Smile . A third of my ride should be considered a hike. Definitely better starting here and linking to Rubbish then Trash. Will try again the other way next time.

Definitely more technical trail and I can see what some mean by it not linking, but had some bits that were a good challenge to get through and others I had to wall my bike over.Smile . Lots of roots and rocks so was a bit slippery in wet conditions, and views along river were fantastic. Would do it again.

It was built by someone who was pregnant at the time and wanted a quiet place to walk their dog throughout the pregnancy. It also happens to be bikeable, no need for snark.

Really Good! Great early season run. Good test of well-rounded ness as DH'ers will want to cry on the uphill portions. But the down makes it all worth it. Something for everyone! I'm not saying anything new except that if you've never seen Flight of the Conchords you should, and the name of this trail will make much more sense!

I love this trail. Everyone has a different opinion as to how difficult it is. I found it challenging but not scary. For some perspective, I race enduro in pro women’s category and I love tech trails. There are a handful of uphills that I wouldn’t miss but all-in-all, the descending portions make the trail super fun. I love the rock rolls.

Shelaine22 with all due respect, this trail is so much fun and 100% rideable. It’s totally worth to ride and get to the top of Lower Yer Saddle to start with it, which is a short but Fun Fun Fun heck of a trail, which takes you to the wrecked train cars, then keep on riding on Wreck Train, heading south, then Runaway Train, and if you want more go and do End of the Line back and forth and then make your way back riding the Sea to Sky Trail. Your smile won’t fit in your face.
If you didn’t like it, again with all due respect, you probably need to work on your riding skills, or maybe you just like blue and flow trails.

What a fun trail! Thanks for building it to whoever built it!,Yes, it’s short but if you link it with Wreck Train to Runaway Train to End of the Line (back and forth) and then come back through the Sea to Sky trail, your smile won’t fit in your face. Totally worth it. Better to go with someone else as it’s a bit isolated.

Don’t agree with some of the comments, related to be more like a hiking trail. It’s a great bike trail which requires some technical ability. Feels great once you can conquer different difficult spots. Also, great places to enjoy a break or some pictures along the river. Never give up, keep training, keep trying!

I found the first half of this trail up to the AM/PM intersection to be super difficult with tons of climbing and wasn’t really sure if it was worth the climb. But after that? Oooooooh Nelly!!!! So good. Little jumps and drops and rolls and slabs and berms and all the cool things about biking packed into one little descent.

A double black for the area. And because it’s long. But it’s technically easy in the dry with lots of grip. The rest of the trail is rad too

What a weird tail. It’s got some ups that take a lot of strength to climb and feels super XCish and then KABOOM!! Proper rock roll!! Up up up, GITCHOW! Monster gulley roll. Climb climb climb, GABOOSH! Rock roll drop to hard left. It’s like a pair of spandex shorts with a lever that turns them baggy. So much fun.

This is an amazing trail, a must ride for the confident shredders out there. It is challenging for intermediate level riders, first timers can probably expect to do a little pushing in the steep climb sections as momentum is key but dont let that put you off. The downhill flow is epic! I will ride this trail again and again.

Agree that this trail rides slightly better starting at the bridge. The trail feels like 2 very different style trails though: the first half from the bridge is footy, and technically difficult with some beauty viewpoints of the river waterfalls. Second half is an easy blue through deciduous forest and is flat enough that I take my daughters as young as 4 on it

Thought linking Trash, Train Wreck, and Runaway Train would be a good ride. It was NOT. These trails are more like hiking trails that you can kinda bike. Hard to link a lot of the sections together on these trails without walking. Kept expecting to ride something cool but it just never came.... The photos on Trailforks and Pinkbike are deceiving as there isn't a single remnant of a train on Runaway Train. The stuff you see on Train Wreck is not actually a rideable section of trail. Just a bunch of rail cars with remnants of what used to be a cool looking ride. Now, just a spiderweb of trails full of hiking tourists. None of these were worth it.

This trail is actual trash. Hard to link it together without having to walk sections. Total waste of time. Thought following it with Train Wreck and Runaway Train would make it better...it did not. All of these should be classified as hiking trails that you can kinda bike.
