Description: This is an awesome 10km route, with 600 ish meters of climbing. The loop is about one hour to 1.5 hours if you are riding super fast and don’t stop, or 2 or more hours if you are taking it easy and looking at your GPS or map to figure out where to go next. Expect moderate climb grades and some of Squamish’s best challenging blue trails. Note: some of these trails are bordering on black, so don’t expect a machine built cruise here, although Tinder and Pseudo-Tsuga are machine built gems.
Key trails are: the Stl’lhalem Sintl (also known as the “Climbing Trail” or the Legacy Trail), Fred – which is an awesome, technical mostly downhill XC journey through an incredible forest, Tinder – a machine built gem of a flow trail, Your Mom – a hand built trail with more flow than many machine built trails, and then Pseudo-Tsuga Part 3 – another machine built trail with super high speeds and mad flow. The joke is that Tinder connects Fred to Your Mom…
