One of the newest additions to the creekside zone, Earth Circus is a modern flow trail built at a mellow grade and with generous grade reversals to dump speed (and help avoid braking bumps). It features well-designed berms, fast rollers, and lots of hidden opportunities for small air. Designed and built by Gravity Logic (except the last few hundred meters).

       Tons of fun on this trail. It's never-ending, intermediate level flow. A-Line for the common Joey.

       First ever visit to Whistler bike park last weekend, and Earth Circus is the standout most-fun thing on the mountain - and that's saying a lot. My new favourite trail on the planet.

       Unreal. So flowy, smooth, and just amazing; felt like a rollercoaster. If i could have this in my backyard or even just a couple hours away, I’d ride this trail at any available moment.

       Super flowy, smooth new school downhill with lots of berms. Intermediate rider friendly.

       Painfully bad berms. Do insomnia instead.
