Many of the trails on this route are not accessible to bikers in the winter during ski season. Check trail status with the Whitehorse Cross Country Ski Club.

This route tries to link almost every mountain bike trail on Mount McIntyre. It starts on the fast and flowy lower mountain trails and goes all the way up the Mt Mac alpine to Starbuck's Revenge. The views to the west over Fish Lake and to the East on the Whitehorse valley are epic!

Most trails are rated as "blue/intermediate" trails, but this route also includes more challenging trails such as Upper/Lower Goat (black) and Kid Vicious (double black). If you want to avoid those trails, just ride down the "Ascent Trail", which is a ski trail in the winter time.

On the lower mountain trails, there are plenty of options to make this route shorter or longer. Many trails can be ridden in any direction.
