This is a classic old school trail on the slopes of Whistler Mountain that you have to earn. First you must climb up to the Whistler Microwave Tower at approx. 1500m. Once there you have to find the trail, then its a pretty good grade down through single track, old logged areas with bridges and other obstacles, then through a trail being overgrown by alder, then you're back on the road for a bit then into Tunnel Vision which take us right back home!

brushed out the last 2/3rds of the singletrack section between upper and SCAP yesterday, needs a bit more work but not as overgrown now.

 June 28, 2017 Rode this horrible overgrown, blowdown, mosquito infested trail using Trail Forks recommendations as a guide. We rode up it (trailforks recommendation/punishment). Don't waste your time, the trail down (See Corners and Puke) wasn't worth the climb...boring. AND, I Lost my Oakleys up there.

 The current trail description includes Upper Babylon. Lower Babylon is straight with little change in grade. No reason to bike down this. Going up lets you get to See colours and Puke and the HIgh trails and is a bit of a slog though not a high grade
