This little network is compact and quick, it combines nicely with rides in the Emerald Forest or Bob's Rebob (via Get Over It) as it is connected or next to both. Not overly challenging overall this networkd does feature some tough sections.

Access Info

Ride to the end of Alpine Meadows on Rainbow Drive, or take the Valley trail to Alta Lake Road. The Trail starts just outside of Alpine Meadows on Alta Lake Road (named Rainbow Drive within Alpine Meadows).

 One of the earliest trails built in Whistler by Richard Kelly, Binty and the boys to play in close to their house. So many memories.
