Trail shared by Dave Reed

An excellent descent option coming down from the Desolation Basin.

Description

The upper entrance to this trail is located at a T with the Wapiti Whip trail, and is easily defined by its straight ridgeline. Descending this will lead back to the confluence of the many other trails that lead both up and down.
