This amazing trail at the north end of town will challenge you with its steep, twisty, and technical climbs, and thrill you with its rock descents and great views. It’s an early season favourite, as it is often one of the first trails to be snow free in the spring.
There are a number of features varying in difficulty built all along this great little singletrack trail to keep all riders on their toes. Most of the ride is deep within the forest; however, a few short breaks offer amazing views of Green River below. A short fun little section along the powerlines offers some rock riding and boulder hoping. The trail eventually ends at Highway 99, 13 kilometers north of Whistler.
Trail builder Chris Markle is to thank for this Whistler classic!

Kill Me Thrill Me trailhead leaves Highway 99 a few hundred meters past the Cougar Mountain forest service road near the spot where the concrete median on the left begins. Park across the highway on the gravel pullout. Well marked trail signs confirm that you are in the right spot.
