This is an awesome loop of one hour if you are flying or 2+ hours if you are taking it easy and looking at your Trailforks app to figure out where to go next. Expect moderate climb grades and some of Squamish's best challenging blue trails. Note some of these trails are bordering on black trails so don't expect just a machine built cruise here, although Tinder and Pseudo-Tsuga - Part 3 are machine built gems.

Key trails are the Stl'lhalem Sintl - also known as the "Climbing Trail", Fred - which is an awesome technical mostly downhill XC journey through an incredible forest, Tinder - a machine built gem of a flow trail, Your Mom - a hand built trail with more flow than many machine built trails and then Pseudo-Tsuga - Part 3 - another machine built trail with super high speeds and mad flow. The joke is that Tinder connects Fred to Your Mom... True really.

 Incredible mix of old school and new school. The best of the 3 routes we did in 2019.
