Priest Rapids Wildlife Area Professional Review and Guide

"From this small wildlife area, you’ll enjoy views of Sentinel Gap. Along the route, you may also see bald eagles hunting over the sloughs south of the trailhead near the boat launch and red-tailed and Cooper’s hawks hunting over the desert prairies.

This wildlife area in the region north of Priest Rapids Dam offers a dramatic view of Sentinel Gap—the deep cut in the 1800-foot-tall Saddle Mountain Ridge through which the Columbia River flows. From the trailhead, drop down into the often mud-packed dry slough area and roam among the old dead trees, stumps, and oddly shaped rocks that dot the mudflats."
