“A long descent to finish the Wapiti-Pika point loop.”— Phil Hess
The end of this ridge is also known as Pika Point. From here the descent begins, which is at times steep and loose from dirt bike traffic, but fast enough that you'll need to remember to stop and enjoy the views.
There is a boggy area about halfway through the descent which has been quite degraded by motocross and other travelers taking progressive detours. Try to cross in a way which doesn't widen the trail. This trail, along with many others in the area, is cleared of downed trees primarily by motocross riders, and respectful shared use is the culture here.
