The Flank is Whistler’s sub-alpine classic traverse with drop-dead views of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains and of Whistler Village. Though not technically challenging it has strenuous climbs that will test the strongest of climbers, and it provides access for many of Whistler’s popular descending trails. The full Flank Trail from its north end at 16 Mile Creek to its southern terminus in the Callaghan Valley is 40 km long, but it can be ridden in bite-sized chunks from access points on Whistler’s west side.

This trail continues to provide epic views of the valley. The hike-a-bikes can be a deterrent for most riders so make sure you are prepared.

 GPS seems to be a little out on this at the northern end - should be above Rockwork Orange and Wizard Burial Ground.

 We should either get a new GPS track. Or you could edit the track and on sat view you can see the trail so just move the track.
