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.

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.

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!

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.

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!!
