Wenaha - Tucannon Wilderness Map - WA & OR
The Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness was created by the Endangered American Wilderness Act of 1978. Located in the northern Blue Mountains entirely within the boundaries of the Umatilla National Forest, it bridges the state line between Oregon and Washington. This is mostly undeveloped land used mainly by elk hunters, and more recently by backpackers and outfitters. Deep Canyons cut by rivers and streams into broad tablelands typify this Wilderness. Most of the water in the Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness is free flowing with the exception of a few natural ponds on Moore Flat and numerous springs scattered throughout the area.
