This loop is an absolute gem and is definitely worth the 5000 foot climb (with the reward of a 5000 foot descent!). The trail is a collaboration between WORCA and the Municipality of Whistler, with the Municipality having built the climb and WORCA having built the descent. The climb up is steep and long so make sure you either have an actual granny gear on your bike (2x system) or, if you are running 1x, we recommend at least a 30×42 setup or even easier if you have it. The climb route (at the time of writing this) is not yet complete, so there’s a very short hike to connect the climb to the descent. It is easy to follow and you just need to spot the ribbons and rock cairns to connect the two trails.

LOTS is open as up and down to ~1400m, signage and closure above this (At the downed tree). The trail crew buffed and patched to 1200m and will continue their way up the trail. Please respect this closure as the saturated ground is susceptible to damage at the higher elevations. WORCA trail crew will be reassessing and moving the closure on a weekly basis depending on conditions. Please be patient and continue to respect ALL CLOSURES both here and on Into the Mystic to help us protect this trail.
