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.

 In rough shape. I won’t be riding the trail anymore this year. Someone has walked in it and made large ruts with their boots and another with small snowshoes

 Thar be coyotes!
One of my dogs was put on the chase from near the trailhead by two adult sized coyotes who obviously didn't appreciate her intrusion. Take a pass when riding with dog buddies for now.

 Still lots of snow and ice between Harvey's Hut and Copper Connector. Not rideable yet.

 Strong southerly winds have blown in most of the mid section. The start and the finish (and other bits protected by the trees) are great!

 Wolf on the trail today!
The trail is running fast. A few swails / wash-outs and the occasional posthole but very rideable.
