“A forested trail that leads through a deep pine forest near treeline. Usually, part of a loop.”
— John Scalese
There is a large no trespassing sign at the northern end of the trail. Please respect this.
Features: River/Creek — Wildlife
Mostly good footing that is often mixed with areas that required attention to foot placement.
The Wapiti Trail
leaves the North Sourdough (#835)
at a forest service sign that is easily interpreted. If you are running north on Sourdough, take a right at the signage for Wapiti Trail
. Here, you'll heading generally north on the Wapiti Trail
The trail winds uphill gradually through the forest and then descends quickly on somewhat loose footing. The trail then ends at a large sign where you can continue on the Baptiste Trail (#815)
By the way, "Wapiti" is a word used by the Arapaho meaning "white rump"...or Elk. Maybe you'll get lucky and see some out there!
