Description

Upper Mackenzie Cruise may be one of the most rewarding downhill runs in Pemberton.

Cruise through seas of loam, huck over slabs and enjoy some spectacular views along the way, just be sure to watch your handlebars on the trees! Parts of the trail can be quite wet at times, just remember to ride through the corners and not lock up the rear brakes to avoid trail damage. The trailhead is most often accessed from the Mackenzie Basin Forest Service Road (FSR).

The trail ends at the junction with the Waco Connector and Happy Trail.

Take Waco Connector back to Nimby if you want to pedal back up to the top, or take Happy Trail to head back down to the Lillooet River.

Be mindful of two-way traffic, however. *Parts of Upper Mackenzie Cruise offer access to Cop Killer.* [Source](https://www.imbikemag.com/mountain-bike-news/2019/11/this-has-to-be-one-of-the-best-trail-in-canada-mackenzie-cruise-pemberton-bc/)
