Great trail for dogs. Some elevation gain but not to bad. Decent shade on much of trail.

First time hiking in this area of Washington. The views were good and the trail was well marked. The person working at the lookout was friendly and took the time to show my kids, ages 7 and 9, around the lookout cabin.

Did this trail yearly as a kid, love it. Lookout staffed in the summer and they are always friendly. Great views!

Started at panjab trailhead with 2593 in elevation gain first 4.5 miles then opened up to beautiful meadow. Tons of butterflies at low level and a gorgeous hike. Took 7 hours constantly moving.

Very fun, very pretty trail. It was late in the day and so I only hiked about a mile and a half in, to the first fork. Very easy first section, hiked it with my kids and toddler.

The trail is rather steep and has lots of loose gravel. It tends to be quite exposed, making it often a pretty hot, dry hike. Wildflowers and views were nice, however.

I think the map on this site may be inaccurate towards the top, but it's hard to tell. Near the top, there was a split in the trail and the fork to the right was blocked with fallen logs. I proceeded to the left and it became a trench filled with patches of snow. It came out into the upland meadow, but there was no trail connector, so I noted that there was a set of leg bones still attached to each other where I emerged. I did an over night stay, and had difficulty finding the Panjab trail after that. Finally had to move along the tree line until I found the leg bones. Then I knew where I was. The split I am describing was at the 3.7 mile mark on this map, but I'm only guessing right now.

Fun little day hike! Some down trees to scale over but nothing too bad. The ticks were very bad so be mindful!

Few downed trees across the trail in the first mile but nothing to serious. There is still a very light dusting of snow which made for some great views.

Awesome trail. Took 1.5 days to do it. Many deer. No bears. Did the loop in mid september and it got quite chilly at night. Took me probably a total of 7 hours to do the whole loop going at a pretty consant rate with few breaks. The trail is muddy at points and there are a few trees fallen across. but nothing you can circumvent. Water is plenty up there, just bring a filter!

Great hike! A little smokey but views were still amazing

Fun hike; steep and rocky at times. Beautiful views.

Some over-grown spots but fortunately did pick up any ticks. This tired our dogs out. Walking sticks should be in order as it can be loose under foot on way down.

narrow, steep, but can be done with kids (mine were 4, 11, and 13) but fun. We had lunch on the side of a mountain. How cool is that.

This trail does not currently seem maintained, very overgrown. Nice gentle hike with lots of butterflies and wild flowers. There aren't many views or interesting scenery tough.

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

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.

My wife and I did this loop on memorial day weekend, it took us two and half days. There was a lot of fallen trees on the trail then, but not to hard to get over or under. We seen a few deer, and the marmots were active, no bear sightings this trip.We arrived at the trail head at 3:00pm Saturday afternoon, Walk, walk, walk, made it to Tee Pee camp ground at about 7:00 Made camp and had dinner. Sunday morning we set off about 7:00am to the wooden fire look out, walk, walk, walk, We seen a couple deer cool,walk walk. We hit the trail to the look out so we ditched our bags and trekked up the the wooden fire look out, beautiful scenery all the up and all the way around. Ate some lunch on the benches that are on the wooden structure before going on to Indian Corral, we got some awesome pictures on our way back to our bags. this next stretch was the worst with all the fallen trees on the trail. Both the wife and I were tried of having to navigate them over and under but we finally made it to Indian Corral at about 4:00pm. We made camp, dinner and ate some chocolate mousse and had some hot chocolate for the night. Monday morning was late to rise morning we knew that we only had about three hour to the trail head to meet our ride, so we relaxed and broke camp at about noon. we were back on the trail about 1:30 pm. It's always easier on the way down. about a mile or so before the Tee Pee Indian Corral junction we found the trail was almost gone, the wind took out a big tree that was at the edge of the trail. It was a massive root system. we made it to the trail head at about 5:00pm to find our ride waiting on us. They had arrived earlier that day and had a picnic to pass the time. It was a really great trip, we want to do it again soon!!

Tucannon River Trail
Only about 2miles in the trail is navigably I came to a part where the trail was not in existance. Fallen trees and lot of water was filling the uprooted trees. I could not go one and turned around. This was 3 weeks ago.
