Wenaha - Tucannon Loop (Backpacking) Professional Review and Guide

"With so much nearby mountain splendor to keep them occupied, most Washington backpackers know little or nothing about the Wenaha—Tucannon Wilderness. They may have noticed it on maps, tucked away in the state’s southeast corner, or perhaps heard stories about the region’s elk or canyon scenery, but relatively few have bothered to explore this land.

Those who do, learn that Washington has more to offer than mountains and beaches. Here you’ll discover a land of forested plateaus and ridges with terrific views down into impressively deep canyons. Along the canyon bottoms you can camp beside joyful streams and savor views back up to the canyon rims, which are unlike anything found elsewhere in the state. Elk are abundant in this ideal habitat and they are joined by bighorn sheep, black bear, mountain lion, and many other species not often seen in the more densely forested Cascade and Olympic mountains."
