Wahtum Lake Road Professional Reviews and Guides
"Enjoy some of the finest views and one of the largest lakes within the 64,960-acre Mark O. Hatfield Wilderness, all for only a minimum amount of expended sweat! Walk among old-growth giants flanking rippling Wahtum Lake, and then climb to the windblown open summit of Chinidere Mountain, where five volcanoes and practically every prominent peak lining the gorge vies to get in your face."
--Craig Romano, Day Hiking Columbia River Gorge (The Mountaineers Books).
