 Best ridden counterclockwise. As of July 2018 there is a section of Widowmaker taken out by a landslide. Very tricky to handle a bike across it. So be sure to check conditions

Entire ride was way cool. Didn't really know where I was going and was in a bit of a time crunch. Wish I could do it again soon. Trail was in great condition.
