Description

The east fork of the Wallowa River runs along the entire trail. Roger and Aneroid Lakes provide good trout fishing in the summer. Many wildflowers may be seen along the trail, beginning in late June. At various times you may find Monkey Flowers, Gentian or Elephant's Head. About 1.5 miles from the trailhead, the trail passes a reservoir used for storing water piped to the hydroelectric plant at the trailhead.

NW Forest Passes are not required at Wallowa Lake Trailheads.

The trail is well maintained. It is signed at the trailhead and at all main junctions. The trail is easy walking or riding with numerous switchbacks. There are many loop opportunities available from the Tenderfoot Pass area.

There are no campsites at the trailhead, but there are many dispersed camping areas near Aneroid or Roger Lake. Wallowa Lake State Park is near the trailhead. Reservations are required at this campground during summer months.
