The Wapiti Creek Trail offers panoramic views of the Sawtooth Mountains as it climbs from the trailhead to its terminus at the Ten Mile Ridge Trail.

The first part of the trail climbs for over a mile, following multiple switchbacks across a hillside, to gain a ridge.

The trail continues up, makes a sidehill traverse across loose granitic soils, and enters a saddle before the uphill travel eases.

The route is easier as the trail follows along the ridge for over 2 miles to the junction with the Ten Mile Ridge Trail.

From the junction, bike travel is only permitted to the right (west) portion of the Ten Mile Ridge Trail. Traveling east on the trail (to the left) quickly takes you into the Sawtooth Wilderness.

A loop can be made by combining the Wapiti Creek Trail with the Ten Mile Ridge and Blue Jay Trails.
