Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade describes the potential consequences of falling or slipping off the path.
Low Exposure: The path is on completely flat land and potential injury is limited to falling over.
Medium Exposure: The trail contains some obstacles such as outcroppings and rock which could cause injury.
High Exposure: Some trail sections have exposed ledges or steep ascents/descents where falling could cause serious injury.
Extreme Exposure: Some trail sections are extremely exposed where falling will almost certainly result in serious injury or death.
The Wasatch Over Wasatch Trail, AKA the WOW Trail, is one of the newest trails in the Park City Area.
This relatively long (by Park City standards) trail connects from Park City all the way to Wasatch Mountain State Park, and by extension, the Heber and Midway areas.
Many riders choose to shuttle the WOW Trail, making for an incredible shuttle run, but it's also climbable, making for great long-distance ride connections. While the route shown here is a point-to-point shuttle, the WOW trail isn't all descending.
Riders will begin with a stiff climb, but that climb leads to superb singletrack ripping all the way down to the state park far, far below.
“It’s a machine-cut trail but already has an incredible riding line in it," said Scott House of Jans/White Pine Touring in Park City, in an article published on Singletracks.com.
"It travels through a couple different environments from aspen groves and pine forests to high desert and scrub oak forests.
Lots of flow with just the right amount of tech and challenge to keep it fun for most abilities.
