Sparky's Spin Squamish Hiking Trail

Trail Spotlight: Sparky's Spin

Drop down into Sparky's Spin and explore the route that our lift manufacturer, Doppelmayr, travelled to access tower locations during the construction of the gondola.

This is a steeper single track trail for intermediate hikers that begins adjacent to the exit of the Sea to Summit Trail. 

You will enjoy a moderate downhill hike through the forest with views of Sky Pilot and Co-Pilot Mountains and Goat Ridge. 

The trail meanders through lush green forests and provides unique views of the gondola from below.

The trail crosses rocky outcrops as you descend towards Wrinkle Rock.

At the lowest point on the trail you will find beautiful views of the Sea to Sky Gondola descending towards Howe Sound.

At this point Sparky's Spin connects with the Upper Sea to Summit. Your final kilometer will bring you uphill back to the Summit Lodge.

Level of difficulty: Intermediate
Distance: 1.68 km loop
