This is a sensitive alpine environment, please stay on trail! Do not ride in super wet conditions or early season before snow melt.

This loop consists of the new 2017 Sproatt alpine trails. Climb up to the alpine via Into The Mystic then traverse the beautiful alpine along On the Rocks. Then it is highly recommended to make the extra journey along the Happy Hour trail to get more alpine riding and the best views of the Whistler valley. Now you are in for a treat, the descent down Lord of the Squirrels!

Lord of the Squirrels is WORCA's showpiece trail has was under construction for 3 years.

The climb up into the alpine via Into The Mystic is not a tough climb, but it is long! However getting to the start of the climb on the flank trail is a steep climb for many and will be the toughest part of the journey.

There are several ways to access the start of this route.
Creekside Access
Function Access
Rainbow Park Access
