Sea to Sky Trail
This is a work in progress and what a piece of work it is. Winding
its way through some of the worlds most breathaking scenery the trail
is spectacular. With plans to go from south of Squamish, through Whistler,
Pemberton and then on to D'Arcy this is a hell of a ride. The section
from Squamish past Whistler is already open and the rest will be completed
shortly. You can access the trail in several area for short rides or
you can attempt the whole 150kms. The trail is multi-use.
Forest This area lies north of Whistler just above Alpha Lake. Turn
north on the westside main road which follows the Cheakamus River. The
area has five trails which range from easy to difficult.
There are lots of
other great rides around town which will satisfy everyones expectations.
Easy trials through the lost lake area are contrasted by break burners
such as the North West Passage. There are several trails on the west
side of Alta Lake for expert riders. Following Alta Lake Road will lead
you to some awesome single track. More riding can be found on the east
side of Green Lake and to the north along 16 mile creek.
Most of the Lost
Lake Trail system as well as the paved Valley Trail are accessible to
road bikes. The multi-use Valley Trail runs the lengh of the valley
from Alpha to Emerald.
Region - Sea to Sky
Brohm Lake South This is
a whole network of trails which can be accessed from Alice Lake Provincial
park but might best be accessed from hwy 99 south of Brohm Lake, as
the name implies. The area includes the Cat Lake Trails and the Garibaldi
Highlands Trails. Difficulties really vary with easy fireroad and steep
twisting single track along with good climbings and easy flowing decents.
Grouse Mountain/North Shore Trails. Considered
some of the gnarliest and best in the world. While you can still find
some easy rides on jeep and single track the focus here is becoming
extreme. If slick mud, water soaked roots, wicked drop-offs don't get,
you some of the trail builders have added even meaner elements to bend
your metal. It doesn't matter how good you are you'll find your match
on one of these trails. You can access the trails at the end of Mountain
Highway in North Vancouver. See Mount Seymour for more north shore trails.
Mount Seymour/North Shore Trails Considered some
of the gnarliest and best in the world. There is not much easy riding
(see the Lynn Valley Trials for easier rides) here the focus is definately
on the extreme. Like the Grouse trials we're lookin at slick mud, water
soaked roots, wicked drop-offs and some of the steepest single track
you'll find anywhere. If your good you'll get better, if your bad you'll
get broken. You can access the trails from Old Buck logging road just
at the base of Mount Seymour Road.
Lynn Valley These are some relatively easy trails
in great surroundings. The Lynn Canyon is a beautiful area. You can
enjoy the day here or use it for a warm-up for the nearby "North
Shore Trails". Access just east of Lynn Canyon, turn north from
Kieth onto Riverside Drive and go to the end of the road.
Pemberton/Mosquito Lake There are a number of
trails south of Pemberton including the area around Nairn Falls Provincial
Park but the best of the best is the Mosquito Lake Trails. There are
over ten excellent trails here ranging from easy flat loops to some
almost impossible sections. Definatly look before you leap in this area.
Trails Located in Sqaumish this area has several trails with excellent
single track. Follow loggers lane north east from the lights on highway
