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.

Muddy on the top third. Especially bad in the late afternoon. Also snow cover in sections. The bottom half is still good to go, so an out and back...

All of the rain over the past couple days made for a moist train with only a couple wet spots. Absolutely beautiful!

 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.
