The Forest Road and Recreation Reports summarize the current conditions for many of the main forest roads, trails and major developed recreation sites across the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest. These reports are updated throughout the year as forest managers review the sites and areas. The tables list which sites and roads have been maintained as defined below.
A recreation site or trail that is shown as 'maintained' has been reviewed by a district recreation manager, the known hazards (e.g. broken trees and branches) have been removed and annual maintenance tasks have been completed.When a road is shown as 'maintained' the road has been driven by district road engineers and the observed hazards have been removed.
“User Reports under “Conditions/Notes” in the following tables are not validated by Forest Service personnel; however information is shared for the benefit of all users.”
“Hazards may occur at any time so always be prepared for unplanned events creating hazards such as downed trees, water crossings, water on trails, rocks on trails, etc.”
