Owl Creek To D Arcy: In the fall of 1994, the Sea to Sky trail crew began building in this area to prepare for the opening of over 40 km of low-level use roads and trails slated to open in the summer of 1995. Over 23 km of fresh trail was brushed and cleared between Gramsons and DArcy through Birdenhead Lake Provincial Park. Directions - follow Hwy 99 past Whistler to Gramsons. The ride starts on 4x4 road logging road. Parking is available at the trailhead.
Squamish To Whistler: Presently this section of the trail encompasses the Cheakamus Challenge mountain bike race course - a gruelling 58 km mountain bike race that starts at the Sun Wolf Resort in Brachendale and finishes in Whistler, with a 7 km side loop at the salt sheds just off of highway 99.
The trail starts at the Sun Wolf Resort located in Brackendale, about 60 km North of West Vancouver. If you are spending the night, there is a campground at nearby Alice Lake Park.
There is a train from Vancouver to Whistler for only $20 (604-984-5246).
