A short section of descending trail located on Whistler’s westside that was once the ending to what use to be known as Binty’s High Trail. Binty’s is best ridden in combination with Twenty-Seven Switchbacks, if you happen to be descending down Twenty-Seven Switchbacks, but is definitely not a destination trail when compared to all the goodness found nearby. The trail begins at the junction to Twenty-Seven Switchbacks and the Rainbow Loop trails. There are several steep sections of soft and very loose dirt onto large exposed roots and rocks. In 2014 the trail received some love for the World Enduro series, but ended up in roughly the same shape it was in prior to the Enduro – once it saw a few hundred riders charge down it. A couple of low lying ladder bridges have been added to get over the streams and some work has gone into a few corners, most of which are soft and loose.

To access this trail from Alta Lake Road, ride up Rainbow Loop to the junction with Twenty-Seven Switchbacks and look for Binty’s to begin on the east side of the Rainbow Loop. From there the trail is easy to follow back down to Alta Lake Road.

TRAILHEAD | N50 07.913 W122 59.588

Access to Binty’s is found directly east of and across from the exit/trailhead to Twenty-Seven Switchbacks, when descending Twenty-Seven Switchbacks. You can also chose to pedal up to Binty’s by riding Rainbow Loop from the Rainbow Lake Trail parking lot located just north of the cemetery on Alta Lake Road.
