Description

If you chose to run out-and-back, this makes for a long run. If shuttled from the top Parking lot, there is 200' climb then descending at a steady grade on loose dirt and narrow singletrack, but with great views. This trail is heavily used by mountain bikers, be aware of your surroundings and of other users on the trail.

To begin the out and back drive up SR 222 from Midway, UT toward Wasatch State Park/ Guardsman's Pass. About a 1/4 of a mile past the State Park Campground, there is a dirt pullout and trailhead on the east side of the road, park there. This is called Pine Canyon Trailhead. Cross the road, then the wooden footbridge and continue up the well-built switchbacks and berms.

If you are going to do W.o.W. trail as a shuttle, continue up SR 222 after the bottom trailhead for about 3.4 miles (You can also drive down from Gaurdsman's or Deer Valley, just get a shuttle car to the bottom).

You'll see 3 concrete barriers on the west side of the road with room for 3 parked cars. Park there, run past the north side of Hardy Lake (which is probably just a mud puddle) on an old doubletrack road for 0.1 mile and link into the singletrack on the left. The tail weaves up 200 ft on a mellow grade before beginning the descent. As you descend enjoy the views and the switchbacks as they make the grade much easier.
