Combines the best of trail riding (fun trail, good flow, variety of trail, etc) with the best of park riding (the chair lift does all the hard work). Khyber is best ridden on an all mountain/enduro type bike (eg a 6 & 6 type bike) and best accessed via Top Of The World from the top of the Peak Chair. The trail isn't as steep as other options such as Ride Don't Slide or Kashmir, and instead traverses through the subalpine and deep forest of the upper flanks of Whistler Mountain above Creekside and Function Junction. It is comparable in difficulty to the first half of Top Of The World.

Near the end of Khyber, there are a few options to pick from - Middle Of Nowhere (leads to Kashmir & Kush), Upper Babylon By Bike (leads to questioning your life's decisions), or lots of logging road down to lower trails (leads to options such as See Colours and Puke, Heavy Flow, Tunnel Vision, Big Timber)

Note: bikers thinking of riding Khyber need to realize that they're no longer in the bike park and need to be self-sufficient for any potential repairs or injuries. Bring lots of water and snacks if you haven't ridden it before, as it can take you a while to get back down to the valley.

       Good Trail but it has some real Gnarly Sections especially at the top Steep, Rough and Exposed rocky sections definitely a Double Black at the top in my opinion! It gets better and better as you get further down the Trail though!
