    New question here. Pemberton - looking for route feedback

    I'm planning to visit Pemberton with a group of friends in July. It'll be a single day in a week of North Shore - Squamish- Whistler - Pemberton.

    I looked at posts here, Trailforks, stuff on the web, and the Strava heatmap and put together a long loop. Would love to get some feedback.

    Hoping for a 12-15 mile loop; both flowy and tech downhills are of interest, black diamond-level trails are fine and would consider double-black if they're worth it.

    Route I have so far:

    up Happy, Waco, Nimby
    easier: pop out to road, down to Overnight Sensation
    option: up Let It Go, Middle Earth, down Rudy's
    down Overnight Sensation
    Linda Rd, Mosquito Lake Rd, to No Err
    to Creampuff down, Railroad back to parking

    Question: is No Err good in both directions? Trailforks has it the other way and I read something about there being rock slabs.

    Question 2: this starts with a looot of climbing especially if you do the option to Rudy's. If we wanted to mix the climbing & descending a bit more, what would you do instead of Rudy's? Backpains? Upper Mackenzie Cruise?

    Q 3: are we missing any trails that are especially "Pemberton-ey"?, meaning unique in character or different from what's in the other places, if there is such a thing?

    Q 4: is Jack the Ripper so awesome that we should consider doing it instead?

    Thanks for any info!

    If it were me, I would probably just do the Tenquille Lake heli drop and call it good.

    1. No err goes north, really fun mellower rock slabs trail, suppose you could go up it alright but usually just go up the adjacent fire road to access econo line to cream puff.
    2. Max pains/back pains is a really fun option, overnight sensation is also awesome.
    3. There's a lot of good trails but you are only doing 1 ride and the stuff you've picked is good.
    4. Haven't done it

    Just do JTR. 1300m of climbing singletrack. Then 1200m sfd. Then climb back up via Ivey Lk road then down Meat Grinder to keep it real. Dinner at Mile One. If you have all your teeth left after that big smile
