Singletrack mountain bike trails

Charlie's Angel's bike race in Whistler

Whistler has an array of singletrack cross country mountain bike trails for intermediate and advanced riders.

The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) maintains several singletrack trails in Whistler:

Valley Singletrack 

Residents and visitors who want to explore Whistler’s singletrack can take the Valley Singletrack Suggested Route.

Intended as a recreational cross country bike ride, rather than a commuting option, the route design allows guests to enjoy two to four hours of riding single track on a mix of intermediate and advanced trails. The suggested route covers popular singletrack trails including trails in Lost Lake Park, Cut Yer Bars, Emerald Forest, and River Runs Through It.

Riverside Trails

With excellent rides for beginners the Riverside Trails within the Whistler Interpretive Forest feature a network that is suitable for every level of rider.

Cruise through old-growth forest along the Cheakamus River on well-maintained, easy to moderate, singletrack trails.

Cross the river on the suspension bridge, pedal or hike to Loggers Lake for a quick swim or head back to Cheakamus Crossing (an expanding neighbourhood in Whistler).

If you have more time, the Interpretive Forest provides access to the Cheakamus Lake Trail, where intermediate mountain bikers can ride to a wilderness lake.

At the south end of town is the more recently completed Sea to Sky Trail (accessible from Cheakamus Crossing) leading to Brandywine Falls.
