A newish addition to the upper flanks of Whistler connecting Khyber to Kashmir. Definitely a great addition to the park, allowing for combinations of Top Of The World & Khyber with Kashmir & Kush.

Middle Of Nowhere is not quite a 2km traverse with small amounts of climbing and a bit of descending. Probably quite unenjoyable on a DH bike, so only recommended for those on trail bikes.

The entrance isn't signed or marked, but is a fairly obvious right fork most of the way down Khyber.
