Trail Report - Wallowa Mtns and Eagle Cap Wilderness

This trail report provides the known conditions for the main summer recreation trails in the Wallowa Mountains and Eagle Cap Wilderness.

A 'maintained' trail has been reviewed by a district recreation manager, the known hazards (e.g. rock slides, broken trees and branches) have been removed and annual maintenance tasks have been completed.

  • “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.”

  • "Wilderness Permits are required on all trails in the Eagle Cap Wilderness and are available at all Eagle Cap Wilderness trailheads."
