Tucannon River Professional Review and Guide
"Start by crossing Sheep Creek on a sturdy bridge. The way follows a recently decommissioned road for about a 0.25 mile before transitioning to older roadbed. Traversing a bench above the Tucannon River, the trail skirts the Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness before briefly passing through a small section of it. The 177,465-acre wilderness was created in 1978 to protect the habitat of one of the largest herds of Rocky Mountain elk. They were introduced into the region in 1913. Hunters covet them, and during elk season this trail and many others in the region see quite a bit of human activity. Otherwise, it’s pretty quiet in the backcountry of the Blues."
