Whistler is known for it’s outdoor recreational opportunities however, biking captures the hearts of most summertime dwellers. The village fills with the “woos” and “hoos” of bikers descending from epic rides, accompanied by the “clinks” of glasses filled with beers.

Vail Resorts knows how to put on a show and offer amazing riding but did you know a network of trails that lie beyond the boundaries of the Bike Park?  Get off the beaten path and discover a different kind of adventure – providing riders with the opportunity to explore the stunning natural beauty of the Whistler area while experiencing a variety of terrain and challenges. Zip through the trees, bike to the lakes or take in more mountain views!

Perfect for springtime riding to get your legs ready or on those busy summer days when you want to find a trail away from the crowds, check out these Whistler Bike Trails that are accessible through a little pedal power.
