WS Mountain Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This loop takes you through a remote section of the Blue Range Primitive Area. The hike starts by crossing the Blue River, which flows through the heart of the wild area, and then climbs over WS Mountain and traverses a section of the Mogollon Rim through fine stands of ponderosa pine, Douglas-fir, and quaking aspen. From WS Mountain, you’ll have outstanding views of the northeastern section of the Blue.
After a heavy winter, snowdrifts may block the highest section of the loop until late May. The lower sections of this route, near the start and end, are hot during June and July. Warning: If the Blue River is ﬂooding high, abort the hike and do not attempt to cross the river."
