The Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness protects 177,465 acres of the Blue Mountains of southeastern Washington and northeastern Oregon. A land of high tableland ridges and deep forested canyons cut by pristine waterways, the Blues are a wildlife haven traversed by some of the loneliest trails in the Northwest. On this loop to the highest point in the wilderness, enjoy a historical fire lookout, flower-speckled ridges, tumbling creeks, the sun-baked Blues—and the opportunity to see some of the Blues’ legendary elk herd.
