“A forested trail that leads through a deep pine forest near treeline. Usually, part of a loop.”

River/Creek · Wildlife
There is a large no trespassing sign at the northern end of the trail. Please respect this.
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!
