Description

The Bowman Trail is a major access point for hikers and horses into the Eagle Cap Wilderness. This route provides access to Chimney, Hobo, Laverty and Wood lakes, as well as Brownie Basin and North Minam Meadows. Steep, rocky mountain ranges are framed with beautiful flower-filled meadows. On Trail No. 1659 to Laverty Lakes, there is a view of Twin Peaks to the east and Eagle Cap to the south past Flagstaff Point. Opportunities abound for fishing and viewing elk, deer, and bear. There is water available along most of the route, but be prepared for areas in between water sources. We recommend taking water from natural springs and clear sources where possible, using a filter suitable for Giardia and other micro-organisms, or boiling your drinking water for at least five minutes. The trailhead has a stock ramp, hitch rails, picnic area, and outhouse facilities.

Trail Park Passes are required at Bowman Trailhead.

This trail has a moderate to steep grade with many switchbacks. There are several stream crossings along the route. Follow trail junction signs and a map to locate the various lakes. The trail to Hobo Lake is not maintained for packstock. The trail to Wood Lake can be difficult for stock. There is limited parking at the trailhead.
