Downhill switchback trail starting near the end of North Rim. The most popular trail off of North Rim. Was once built by bikers, for bikers - the only trail in the park like this. However, that was a long time ago and trails in the park don't hold up. Corners and berms are now all blown out and rocky. Lots of loose dirt and rocks. Flow is there but can be hard to find amongst the rocks. Most people would describe this trail as rocky, yet still fun.

 B-Trail is a local favorite. It's challenging but I wouldn't rate it a double black diamond. By Whistler standards this would most likely get a blue square rating. Maybe a black diamond. Definitely not double black though. Wink

 I agree, I'm not sure who changed it to double black.
