About this Hike 

The Wenaha is a rugged and scenic canyon that offers great places to camp and panoramic views of the Wenaha drainage. Whether you're looking for a weekend backpacking trip or a quick day hike, the Wenaha has a lot to offer. It's a good fishing stream and offers seclusion because of its remoteness. However, rattlesnakes are common along the trail so be cautious of where you step. The trail begins at Troy Trailhead in Troy, Oregon and ends at Timothy Springs Trailhead.
