Dang. I loved that climb.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

Any background for us? I thought that was a TAPped trail, therefore sanctioned? Why is it history?

I am baffled by the requirement for this parking lot.

I wonder how many people in Whistler would like a parking lot at the top of Stone Bridge?

i wonder if it's for the mountain bikers, or for the local residents

A road to a trail that you have to climb is access other trails?

I had a love/hate relationship with that trail as it once royally kicked my ass (busted pelvis and elbow in one shot) a couple years ago. Since then, whenever I got out to ride Fromme - which really isn't often- I always made sure to ride it at the end not only because it was a lot of fun but to also prove to myself that I can in fact ride it without destroying myself…most of the time.

Disappointing to hear that it is going/gone.

it's more like putting a parking lot at the bottom of the legacy climb, or bottom or half nelson……oh wait

Numbers my man, numbers. Not nearly as many people ride Stonebridge as Fromme. Plus the houses up there are far back from the road for the most part, not very occupied as far as I can tell and still being constructed or empty lots.

The parking lot might not suit riders here, but I bet there's many a parent who's happy not to have to hump their kids up mtn hwy at the start of the ride, or ride down mtn hwy afterwards. For some dog owners as well, avoiding mtn hwy could be nice.
