A very fun, relatively short, newish, loamy trail which has flowy sections as well as steep and challenging sections with tight corners. Always a fun trail to link up with lower Tunnel Vision. Worth the climb and a good trail in every condition.

Access Info

It's right next to the big electrical building off of the microwave road.

This trail is unsanctioned.

       It’s open. Slash the fresh dirt and send the rock step up! Thanks for your patience. ????????

       Probably my favourite trail in the whole whistler valley.

      Was a bit blown out last time I rode it. May be best to leave be in wet weather to increase its life expectancy.

      Lives up to its name.

      Best when linked up with hi-hi and high side
