High Point

This is a great loop to do if you only have 1 to 2 hours. The trails in Valleycliffe are really different than the rest of Squamish, with loads of short steep climbs. The descent down Meet Yer Maker is incredibly fun and quite technical in a couple of spots, but an experienced Intermediate rider will still be happy despite possibly dismounting for one or two challenging rock features. Advance riders will love this loop as the ups are physically hard, but interesting and the descents are thrilling especially if you are looking for extra speed.
