“Access from the Upper Wapiti trailhead to the Little Wapiti-Pika Point Loop”— Phil Hess
After dipping down and continuing to the right, where the Little Wapiti trail continues to climb straight ahead, the trail crosses the creek again, then resumes a gentle climb on a flowing, well-benched trail through the woods to a major junction meeting the Minnie Wapiti Trail #203 descending from Pika point.
This is most often ridden at the end of Little Wapiti-Pika Point Loop but would make a great out and back for a more mellow sampler of rides and terrain in this area.
Note: The portion on this trail to the west and south of the Upper Wapiti Trailhead is not well-used and trail conditions can be variable. This description is for the portion of this trail between the upper and lower trailheads.
