Originally built as an exit from the upper loop of Comfortably Numb, Wish You Were Here also serves as a challenging climb on a 60's era logging skid road. "The Homemakers Guild" has spent time cleaning up and buffing this route to provide a better experience for users in either direction.

Access Info

It's best accessed using Sea to Sky trail (pleasant) and the north side climb of Green Lake Loop as a warm-up trails. From the high point on Green Lake Loop pin it uphill when you need to and soft pedal the rest. Soon you pop out on the best part of Comfortably Numb.

       Although a tough climb, WYWH is seeing a lot of uphill traffic these days. If you're looking for a Blue descent from Comfortably Numb, it's a pretty fun rip.
