This 177,465 acre wilderness area in the Umatilla National Forest
is located in the northern Blue Mountains
of southeastern Washington and northeastern Oregon. The wilderness features canyons, lava mesas and plateaus. There is a large Rocky Mountain elk population, as well as bighorn sheep, deer, bear, cougar, coyote, and many other wildlife species. The trail system within the wilderness provides over 200 miles of trails for a primitive, unconfined recreation experience.
Access to the wilderness can be gained in early spring along the Wenaha River near Troy.
