Built by a contractor for the Resort Municipality of Whistler, this trail travels through the undulating alpine of Mount Sproatt offering spectacular views of the entire Sea to Sky Corridor in every direction. This machine built trail starts just at Into the Mystic and travels to the Lord of the Squirrels intersection.

This is a sensitive alpine environment and users should respect the area and the trail. Please avoid this area in times of prolonged wet weather, do not freeride off trail, pack your trash out with you, and always respect other users.

Disclaimer

NO E-BIKES, NO DOGS IN THE ALPINE.

       A few remaining snowy sections, and still being finished by the trail crew, but very fun moderate riding in an incredibly scenic (alpine lakes and wildflowers) part of the world.
