Wallowa Lake is one of the most iconic scenes in Northeast Oregon and my wife and I favorite areas. When we first came into the area we dreamed of vast natural scenery where people could relax, unwind and explore. Wallowa Lake is a big part of that experience.

The lake goes by many names such as "The Crown Jewel", "The Sapphire in a Sea of Astounding Landscapes", and the "WOW of the Wallowas." When you drive into the Joseph Oregon for the first time, the mountains and lake couldn't be more beautiful. Many travelers and tempted to take out their cell phones and collect the memory.

This ribbon lake, with its deep blue crystal-clear water and rugged mountain framing was formed by a series of glaciers. The rich and fresh mountain air, brilliant night sky, are the perfect place to relax and recover from the stresses of life.

Wallowa Lake has tons of activities that appeal to everyone in your family no matter what the age. Many of our visitors take the local tram ride and spend the day relaxing in the clouds. Kids love the local miniature golf, horse ride or splash each other in bumper boats. It's the perfect place to leave electronics behind and reconnect as a family.

If fishing is your passion then Wallowa Lake has trout that are large and plentiful. If you are looking for more exclusive wilderness lake fishing then we recommend taking a horseback ride from Oregon Backcountry Outfitting.

The Wallowa Mountain Range, located in the Eagle Cap Wilderness of eastern Oregon, is one of the most stunning areas to backpack in the Pacific Northwest. Often referred to as the "Alps of Oregon", the immense granite peaks of the Wallowas are best experienced on multi-day backpacking trips.

This 36-mile Wallowa River Loop Trail will take you over some breathtaking mountain passes and still ensure that you get a chance to take in the beauty of the Lakes Basin. Over the course of this loop you can expect to see crystal clear lakes and streams, wildflower-socked meadows, and granite peaks that will make you wonder if you're still in Oregon.

There are also very worthy side trips to the summit of Eagle Cap and Matterhorn that will further solidify your appreciation of the Wallowas. Although this trail sees its fair share of hikers, we think it's well worth a visit.
Late season this trail head does not fill up at all, I showed up and there were plenty of spots left, the fall colors were stunning on my 30+ mile loop and I plan to go back to do additional loops. Please be aware that the road leading up to this trail head through Joeseph has an insane amount of elk and deer
