Crooked Creek Trail is maintained for foot and horse traffic only, since it is located within the Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness. The trail makes a gradual descent from Indian Corral to the Wenaha River following along first Trout Creek, then Third Creek, and finally Crooked Creek.
Panjab Trailhead has facilities, including feed managers, loading docks, hitch rails, and an outhouse, available for use along with ample parking. The trailhead at Troy does not have any facilities and the parking is very limited.
Three Forks Trailhead has ample parking. The corral facilities at the trailhead are under permit to an outfitter/guide for his use, but may be used when vacant.
For those who have the time, this is a terrific trail. It follows along three different creeks, thus the fishing opportunities are tremendous. There are many places available for camping along the route with an abundant supply of water for stock. Since the trail is only accessible by other trails, it allows seclusion to the traveler.
