Steliko Canyon – Oklahoma Ridge Thru-hike
My partner Steve and I pieced together a day hike originating up the the Entiat River Valley in Steliko Canyon visited Steliko Lookout which they are renovating and followed Steliko Ridge to Goman Ridge and out Oklahoma Ridge to a second vehicle at the mouth of Oklahoma Gulch near the Columbia River. We covered 12 miles and 3250′ of gain on and off trail while passing over Byrd and Chop Block peaks which gave us some good mountain views additionally we had quite a few wildflowers throughout the hike. Many of these early season hikes are specifically designed to condition us for later Spring and Summer trips, but each is also a great experience to enjoy some diverse terrain in solitude. As always the photographs on the fly tell the best story of the trip. Happy Trails !
