This trail is located in Whistler. This 34.2 km (20.52 miles) out-and-back takes you high above the valley to a microwave tower near the jagged tooth of Black Tusk. This volcanic tower dominates the skyline, and travelers from all over the world photograph its defiant silhouette. Few of these tourists ever have the opportunity to experience its magic firsthand. Be aware, though, that this ride doesn't take you all the way to the tusk. You'll need to park you bike at the microwave station and scramble up another 185 m (607 feet) before you can actually claim bragging rights to the tusk.
