You're in the mood for a ride but the weather in Park City is boiling hot. Worry no more, we have the solution. Unlike many trails in the area, the Road to WOS Loop is a trail which runs between two lines of pine trees in an otherwise open area, so you avoid the humidity that's often otherwise found.
Overall, this is a short and easy trail on buffed singletrack. It can be a great and quick ride after work for local cyclists, and a family friendly trail since its climb is very minimal, especially when compared with other trails in Park City.
The Road to WOS Loop is a short trail primarily on smoothed singletrack (75% of the trail is singletrack). There is a steep climb and some switchbacks but you can manage them by keeping a slow pace and high cadence.
Parking is allowed alongside Matterhorn Drive. The trailhead begins at the bend of the road. You'll start with a short, steep climb past a gate and up a dirt path. Watch for the start of the singletrack on your left.
Food and drink
To the east of Summit Park, from Lincoln Highway, you have easy access to a business area which provides plenty of good restaurants, cafés and bistros. There is something for everyone here.
Following the well-buffed trail switchbacks, you'll come to a "T" intersection where the actual loop begins. Simply follow the Road to WOS signs, it’s difficult to get lost.
If you follow the map, at the end of the western portion, you will encounter an intersection. Don’t panic if you can’t see the Road to WOS sign, just follow the sign that says “Trail” and you'll get back to the “T” intersection.
There are a number of insects that may give you some unfortunate itches for days if you encounter them at the trailhead. Our recommendation is to get going quickly. There is also a warning about bear activity, so do thi sone during daytime only.
