"The Tipperary Creek Loop is a shorter version of the famed Tipperary Creek Classic, one of the first nationally ranked races in the United States and the main attraction at the back-in-the-day Winter Park Mountain Bike Festival. Although it doesn’t include the entire Classic route, the Tipperary Creek Loop does include the legendary Tipperary Creek Trail and provides access to several other Fraser Valley and Winter Park singletrack trails. Though not overly technical or physically demanding, the Tipperary Creek Loop exemplifies how neat and clean singletrack riding can be— something “Mountain Bike Capital, USA” takes pride in. Its soft, smooth-running singletrack will delight, as well as excite a spirit of playfulness in any mountain biker." Read more

A hiking trail that you're allowed to bike on. Few technical challenges other than the grade and 1 creek crossing. Beautiful, deep forest ride with mostly shade on it. If you ride it down hill NW Passage Trail is tough to find. Mosquitoes got me here, wear repellant. Find locals trails for best rides, not on the published maps.
