This trail has been a long time in the making. Literally, it has taken over a year. The last part at the tops and connection is complete and is great. Flows well at the top and has nice berms. This is not just up and down, once you climb up to the ridge, you descent back to the road, with a small kick before you reach the road. Both directions are great and offer some fun bumps. The lower section was an out-n-back for a long time and has some overgrowth, but I think they are cleaning that up now that the top connects to the bottom. But overall great trail. Really long, with no breaks.

       Really long relentless downhill with tons of switchbacks. Nothing technical. No fearful exposures. The lower section of WOW drops out of the Aspens in to more open scrub. More Duffy. Lots of southern exposure so very dry here in mid July.

       Beautiful trail. Great fun, great condition. Dry and dusty. Started at parking lot at bottom of canyon, left another vehicle up top. Hiked up starting at 6:30 a.m. Be careful - stinging nettle on sides of trail 7.1 miles up from bottom. After finishing regular WOW trail at mile 9, continued up 1.5 miles further on Upper WOW Trail to large parking lot with bathrooms. Shallow stream crossing on this upper trail one mile before the parking lot - no problem to jump over rocks, got a little bit wet. Saw three adult moose, two bulls, one cow, in parking lot meadow at 6:20 when dropping off car!

       Fantastic trail. One hell of a climb. If you’re visiting the area, consider shuttling it. Wonderfully fun downhill that takes you through several layers of ecosystems. Exceptional ride.

       A third of the ride was in the rain. The dirt was absolutely epic even while pouring on us in a storm. We saw moose, wild turkey, and the views were epic. We shuttled this reverse (downhill) and I feel this is one of the most underated trails I've rode in the state. The name wow is exactly how our group felt the entire ride

       Awesome trail. We road from top down. There’s two downed trees across the trail toward the top. Too big to move. Somebody will need to bring a saw. So just look out for those if you’re riding fast.

       Absolutely incredible trail, fantastically built! This must go on all MTBers bucket lists. I’ve ridden a lot of trails all over the world and this would be in my top ten, probably even top five. Endless, spectacular, swooping fun with stunning scenery and greenery to ride through! Thank you trail builders and the Park, amazing job!

       This is a fabulous well designed trail with spectacular vistas and ecosystems. If you’re a green/blue type rider and new to this trail, here’s some objective insight: Blue trails cover a wide spectrum — this one is upper-end blue. It’s more difficult than some of the popular PC blue trails such as Mid Mountain, Flying Dog, Moose Puddle and Spiro. In the last few miles, there are narrow mountainside tracks with some side hill exposures — not cliffs but very steep. Rest/repair turnout opportunities are limited and there’s little room for bidirectional traffic. Lots of switchbacks some are loose and rocky.

       Super fun trail top to bottom. Has three distinctly different climates. Up top your riding thru the aspens, and then you drop into the deserty scrub on the west face, cross back over and you are now into the pine trees and at some points you feel like you are in the jungle.
      It is a must do if you are in the are. Whenever I visit Park City , I hop over the mtn and do this trail.
      I do it as a shuttle, but see hikers and the rare biker climbing it.

       Wow is a intermediate flow trail that drops down into a awesome farm valley town with great old school country vibes. Don't forget to check out the local farmers markets and creameries for the best ice cream. A definite break from Park City
