Perhaps the classic Whistler mountain bike trail. This trail has seen many upgrades throughout the years and is now a relatively flowy ride with a few optional 'double-black' sections. If your time in Whistler is limited and you want to sample some classic West-Coast trail building, this is probably your best bet.
Local hammer-heads will clean this trail in about 30 minutes, but mortals should bank on it taking at least 1-2 hours!
From the Village, ride to the end of Lorimer Rd and cross the tracks. Almost immediately after crossing the tracks, turn left off the Valley Trail and follow a dirt road for a couple of kilometres to a reclaimed gravel pit. Continue for another 100 metres and look for a well signed trail head on your left (if you reach Alta Lake Rd you've gone too far).
