I love it.  I walked around it once about 15 years ago, it's a ~95 mile loop.  I'd really love to do it again.  I have no desire to summit, but I would do the Wonderland Trail every year if I could.

How long does that hike typically take?  My buddies and I take a series of annual Manventures.  This year we're headed to the Wind River range in Wyoming.  The Wonderland Trail sounds promising!

The Wind River range is not well known but it has great scenery. We did a day hike on the west end where the Green river comes out of the lakes that was very scenic.

That was years back. We stayed in the little sleepy town of Pinedale, which had a little brewery.  A shale natural gas boom has turned it into a small city from what I read.

Sorry I missed this - it varies widely and has been done in under 24 hours, but I'm guessing you don't want to do that.  I took it slowly and did it in 10 or 11 nights.  Some days I had moved camp by noon and had nothing to do but soak in the sights.  You can do it in a week if you like, as long as you are reasonably fit.  I carried all my food, but you can send stuff to the rangers stations and pick it up along the way.
