One of the older trails in the area, Highway To Hell was once a wood based Freeride trail but the features all rotted away over the years. The trail was given a new lease of life during 2019 and 2020, and a different style. It is now largely dirt and rock based, but still with some jumps, drops and different line choices to test intermediate riders. Look before you leap

Note that the preferred line (and the one mapped here) for most takes you on to Hueso, a double black trail, so be prepared to be able to ride that trail, or the original very steep and rough chute at the end of Highway To Hell which is not being actively maintained.

Access Info

Climb up to the top of Hueso and turn left before the first slab.

       It’s not how the trail was designed. It was a gnarly double black. Now it’s a super fun single black.

      It’s more like. Go the way you want.

       Exactly! If people want to ride the gnarly exit then they can. If people want to ride the 'super fun single black' then just follow Trailforks directions and head over to Hueso via the old traverse to new connector. Given that the old trail literally fell down, it would be irresponsible to send people down the chute given the nature of the rebuild (which was a agreed by SORCA, and the OG builder was aware of and fine with). But if people with the knowledge want to ride the chute, go for it! I have on a number of occasions, but I'll take riding on one of the best sections of trail in Squamish (lower Hueso) over it any day personally.
