At a Glance

Called the “Alps of Oregon,” the Wallowa Mountains boast hillsides blanketed in Douglas fir, valleys thick with Engelmann spruce and lodgepole pine, and alpine meadows fed by mountain springs. Winding through this marvelous work of nature are the many trails of Eagle Cap Wilderness, tranquil roads for you to follow on hikes to learn about this serene landscape. With fellow hikers, set off from base camp each day to explore high-altitude lakes beneath towering peaks and to summit Eagle Cap for sweeping vistas of the surrounding wilderness from above 8,000 feet..
