Afour hourepic cross country singletrack through lush old growth forest just north of Whistler. It beginswith a pedal out the highway to the Edgemount hiking trail turn off. The singletrack climbs for 1500ft. and then crosses the bridge into the heart of the trail. Once on the trail you''re committed to finishing it. It meanders through the forest for an hour or so until you reach the halway point of the heli rescue clearing. Then the singletrack provides views of the valley froma few lookouts along theway. The final descent into Lost Lake is 30-45mins long,with rocky sections and flowy technical sections as well. Pack lots of food and water, a cell phone, and all the tools and emergency gear you''llneed. And leave with lots of daylight left just in case.

Summary:
Fun trail but definitely on the advanced side for a XC ride. Should be rated "XC-BC-Style"
A very skilled rider can do this on a hardtail or short-travel XC bike but is so much more entertaining on a trail-bike. I REALLY wish I was on my Nomad, it would have been a perfect match! There are some fun ladders and bridges and lots of trail features. Some rock at the beginning lets you know pretty quickly what you are in for tech-wise. Climbing was long-ish but pretty easy.

Summary:
I ride the trail like two times a year when I'm up in Whistler. It's a very technical trails which is almost 99% a real mountainbike trail. (Not like others trails with lots of fire roads)

It can be demandig if your a not serious rider. I did it on my hardtail and I rode everything (hard and dry) and it took me a little more than 3 hours but I think it is doable in 2.75h. But then you really have to go fast.

I ran into a couple of riders, I'm sure some of them needed the whole day.
You don't have to bring to much water. As described there are 2 river crossings in the first 3rd of the trail. So you don't have to carry all the water to the top. Just fill your tanks at the second river crossing and you will be fine. I would recomment to bring at least 4-5 powerbars.

Note that there isn't almost no cellphone acces.
If you ride the trail after about 40 minutes there is an exit route which you can take if you think it is to though for you. This trail is described as north secret together with kill me thrill me which is also highly recommendable. The exit is well signed.

Recommended Route:
Look for the entrance as described below and just follow the trail. You can't miss it:)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Thrill me kill me, North Secret (Thrill me kill me, part of CN)
