Following the Tucannon River, this easy 8.2-mile round-trip day hike or overnighter wanders through cool and shady old-growth forest along one of the largest streams in the Blue Mountains. Stop and dangle your feet in the water on a hot day, or bring your tent and enjoy the solitude and the sounds of the tumbling stream for a night or two. This leisurely walk along the northern boundary of the Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness will guide you along a cool mountain stream and through an old-growth forest. The shady trail provides a particularly welcome break from the hot, dry days of summer, and the gentle trail and abundant campsites provide a good chance to introduce kids and novices alike to the joys of camping. While fishing for rainbow trout can be good here, you’ll want to toss back any salmon you might catch, as the Snake River chinook salmon is now a federally protected species.
