Klahowya is a main artery between the canyon and the Sander Lake. Expect a rooty trail with loamy soils through winding forested terrain. The loamy soils will be muddier on wet days – on these days you could use Wapiti Ridge (which also travels between the canyon and Sander Lake) for somewhat drier and smoother terrain.[read more]
As of fall 2016, Klahowya now runs all the way to Sander Lake from the canyon. What used to be the west side of Ptarmigan Trot has been incorporated into Klahowya as part of a naming re-configuration by GCC in an attempt to ease navigation for new users.
Note: Klahowya gets it’s name from a local Sternwheeler which operated on the Columbia River in the early 1900s. It one of three trails named after Sternwheelers.
