Upper Whoops is a two way trail. Stay alert for climbers and be ready to yield — especially in the twisty parts with limited sight-lines. Climbers should also use caution — descenders will be going very fast. It has recently become popular for locals to use the adjacent forest road as the 'up-route' — it’s an easy, steady climb which avoids the downhill traffic (see tan path on the map above).
E-bikes NOT allowed on Upper Whoops
The climb can be a little brutal depending on how far down in Phil’s you started. This trail can also get pretty blown out on the lower sections as the steep terrain makes for some speedy downhill action.
While Upper Whoops is a two way trail, when you’re climbing keep your ear buds out and pay attention for downhill riders — they are naturally going to be moving very fast.
