Oregon and West Buttes Professional Review and Guide

"Hike to a historic ?re lookout set on the highest summit in Washington’s Blue Mountains. Look south to Oregon over high tableland ridges and deep forested canyons cut by waterways. Along the way, visit an obscure butte granting sweeping views—and throughout the hike marvel at flowered meadows and cool old-growth forest groves. Chances are always good for seeing some wild critters. Getting to the trailhead is the tough part—the hike is fairly easy, starting from a lofty elevation.

Locate the Mount Misery Trail, which travels east 13 miles across the rooftop of the Blues. Take it and immediately enter the 177,465-acre Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness in a mature forest of western larch. Thanks to these trees, the Blues turn gold come October."
