College Outdoors

The Wallowa Mountains are hidden in the northeastern corner of Oregon. Rising up from the mile-deep canyon of the Snake River on the Idaho border, these peaks reach almost 10,000 feet. Eagle Cap Wilderness Area covers most of these mountains, offering great backpacking. Join us on this amazing week-long hike through the high country, complete with alpine lakes, glacier-carved valleys, lush meadows and incredible sights. The group plans to hike an average of 6 miles per day carrying backpacks. Trails in the Wallowas are generally steep, but the scenery makes the effort worthwhile. This wilderness is one of the best kept secrets in the Pacific Northwest and looks much like the Swiss Alps.
