This trail is south of Whistler. This ride combines some of the climbing of Microwave Hill with a pleasant singletrack descent back toward Eastside Main Road. By using the road, you can create a 5.6 km (3.36 miles) loop. As you grind your way up Microwave Hill, take the time to enjoy the views of the surrounding ranges. Metal Dome Mountain and Mount Brew dominate the western skyline, and below, the valley of the Cheakamus River is dissected by numerous forestry access roads and trails. Leave Microwave Hill behind at kilometre 1.7 (mile 1.02) and begin the rolling descent f Highline Trail. This singletrack takes you through a rainbow of wildflowers and ferns, with more views of the valley as you descend. Shortly before reaching Eastside Main Road, you'll pass some old remnants of the logging industry for which this valley is well known. Finally, rejoin Eastside Main Road, turn right, and enjoy a quick roll back to your vehicle.
