Gnarly, old school, whistler trail. Unridable by mortal riders, with big lines, nasty chutes and chundery, rocky and steep descent. There are a few hike-a-bike sections which are very treacherous, and I can't imagine how someone could ride it.

If you're a stud on your bike, give it a look. If not, there's plenty better options to get you down from top of the world.

Great trail but it needs some love. Too many downed trees and brush on the trail to ride it properly.

lower third in the clearcut/second growth is very overgrown and the stunts are failing. The upper section in the old growth is running well...

 This is arguably a hiking trail that you can ride your bike down. Probably my least favourite trail in Whistler. Zero flow, some completely unrideable sections (unless you're legitimately insane) and extremely slick if it's damp. Woodwork is falling apart and the trail is overgrown. Complete waste of time.
