This is a great option for beginner and intermediate level riders who want to taste some classic Squamish trails on a mix of fire roads, green trails and easier blue trails. The climbing and descending grades are gradual. For real beginners you can just pedal up the fire road and only ride Rob’s and Cliff’s Corners or even just ride Cliff’s Corners and skip the rest of the ride. Intermediates will enjoy the entire ride and Advanced riders will also have loads of fun riding these trails at full tilt, especially Rollercoaster. If you want more riding simply cross the road after riding Roller Coaster and ride Lumberjacks as a bonus trail in this loop and is the most technical trail in the ride. You can ride all of Lumberjacks and then turn left on the Access Connector, then left and up Glenn’s Carwash. Then ride up Pia Rd and turn left on Perth Rd to get back to your starting point.

Another option for beginners or young riders is to simply ride up and skip Robs and Cliffs and just do a quick and thrilling lap of Rollercoaster, which is a must do trail on any trip to Squamish.

Key trails are Robs Corners, Cliffs Corners, Rollercoaster and Lumberjacks.

Fun as always. Some dusty parts with chunky holes towards the end but overall running great.
