Featured Ride: Whistler’s Top of the World, Khyber, Kashmir, Kush and Big Timber

Don't look down. It's called Top of the World for a reason.

Whistler Bike Park’s Top of the World trail is a bucket-list experience for any gravity-loving mountain biker. This week’s featured ride adds some epic backcountry riding to the legendary Top of the World alpine experience.


This high-altitude experience is open from July through late September. You’ll need to procure both a Whistler Bike Park pass and a Peak Zone pass in order to access this ride. Peak Zone passes are limited to 150 rider per day in order to minimize damage to the sensitive alpine terrain.


This ten-mile ride is not for the faint of heart. In addition to technically challenging terrain and 7,118 ft beginning altitude, much of this ride is fairly remote. Make sure you have adequate bike supplies and fuel for your crew.

The Top of the World Trail hosts the Enduro World Series each year during Crankworx.

Total descent is just over 6,000 vertical feet, but it’s not all down hill. You’ll climb over 1,100 vertical feet before ride’s end.

Be sure to check out all the details on MTB Project before tackling this ride.
