We went on May 14. We loved it. Everything was so green with displays of wildflowers. The creek was obviously full with mountain runoff. Very peaceful. We only met one other couple. The disappointing thing was that we couldn't go farther due to the time factor. We hiked in about 3 miles. Next time I'd like to backpack in and do the whole trail. I think the trail is at its peak beauty now because I'm sure it's pretty dry in summer there.

DISCOVERY PASS REQUIRED. We did not know this upon approaching the trailhead, and we got a "violation" notice for not adequately displaying our Discovery Pass. (We are Idaho residents, and we didn't know where to buy a pass on Easter Sunday.) Other than that, we really enjoyed this hike. We did 15 of the 20 miles, which was already more than we could handle. At mile 4, you enter the Umatilla National Forest. At mile 6 or 7, you climb up the edge of the canyon and get great views of the canyon. Fairly flat trail, and we only noted 1-2 other groups of people on a Sunday (low traffic).

It's a nice trail to go with your children, I have two girls, 3 and 5 and they didn't complaint at all.

Sunny day and the trail was in decent shape- a few muddy spots, snow-free, great for kids and saw a few birds roaming in the air!

Nice stroll with plenty of wild life sightings dep on the time of season day. Great trail to take a mountain bike on also. Bring your rod and catch a fish.

Very cool hike, awesome views of the Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness and very friendly fire lookout attendant with tons of knowledge about the area

Had a lot of downed trees making trail hard. Might've been time of year

Terrific place for families and anyone who wants a pleasant hike. Well-maintained, dog- and kid-friendly, bathrooms, picnic tables, boating, .... It's especially nice to have a hike with a few trees and a water feature in this region of WA.

Good trail. If you start from Panjab trail head know where the springs are for water access. Dunbar and table camp springs were either dry or we could not find the exact location. We had to go to emergency spring, so our first leg of our 20 miler was 11 miles and a little rough.

Went hiking overnight. The road is bad, but the subaru made it. I recommend a truck. There is a $5 National forest fee, which is payable at the parking area with cash in an envelope. The trail starts nice and easy, however the second half is really unmaintained, hundreds of huge trees cover the trail. I took a dog and had to lift her over about half of them. There are huckle berries and wild strawberries about 2 miles in. Also, lots of bear scat but didn't see any bears, or any animals save for a few birds. At the end of the trail 4.1 miles in, there is a nice camp but is covered with potential widow makers, but if you cross the river there is a nice meadow. The place is super dry, and a burn ban was in effect. Also, there are ticks but only saw one and my hiking buddy saw a few rattle snakes. Overall, not bad.

Awesome hike. Lots of elevation gain. The views were spectacular.

Very Beautiful Area, even after a recent fire, nature had no issue covering it's wound. The Wenaha River offers some great fishing and camping all throughout it's expanse, along with some very fun hiking trails that seem like the veins of the forest. If your thinking of checking this hike out be sure to pack a fishing pole you wont regret it. Trail is a constant incline and is difficult be prepared.

Very nice selection of trails over rolling terrain. Good for all able bodied folks!

Steep but worth the views
