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.
