DOGS ARE NOT PERMITTED on the Mount Sproatt and Rainbow Mountain Alpine Trail Network to minimize potential conflict with wildlife.
E BIKES ARE NOT PERMITTED on these trails (i.e. anything above Flank: Lord of the Squirrels, Into the Mystic, With a Twist, On the Rocks, Happy Hour, Pot of Gold, LESS & Don't Look Back). The reason for this is to support environmental considerations, user safety and grizzly bear management in the alpine.

This is primarily a climbing trail from Squirrel pass after descending Rush Hour up to the Sproatt viewpoint with stunning views of the Whistler valley. Then descending Last Call back to Squirrel Pass before continuing to climb back up to Squirrel Lake and LOTS. There is an option to skip Rush Hour and Descend Happy Hour to Squirrel Pass. Caution not to mistake this trail at the junction with On The Rocks for LOTS and descend Happy Hour unintentionally.

Disclaimer

NO E-BIKES, NO DOGS IN THE ALPINE.
