Whistler Canyon Trail is a part of the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail. This 12 mile trail is located 3 miles south of Oroville WA, and connects to the Wilcox Mtn trailhead.

The trail offers many links and loops that will provide vistas of the Okanogan River and Pasayten Wilderness no matter what your experience level. The trail is excellent for hikers and equestrians with some challenging areas for rock climbers.

This is a Big Horn Sheep area and the best choice for wildlife photography. In addition to the sheep, mule deer, bear, marmot, and wild turkey are often sighted.

The lower elevations dry out early, making this a popular spot for hiking and Rock Climbing.
You might wish you brought a camera. TMurray

Hi Striker, could you provide any details about overnight/multi-day camping facilities, were conditions good enough for overnighting it?

There is a campground on top and there are places you could rough camp.

Diablo Lake

North Cascades

Follow the Diablo Lake Trail up and across talus slopes on the flanks of Sourdough Mountain to impressive cascading waterfalls and stunning views. This hike in the North Cascades Institute's backyard makes a great option for an early season hike in stunning North Cascades National Park, much of which is inaccessible during the winter and spring.
