Description

This trail provides you with views of steep rocky mountain ranges framed by lush green valleys. The trail is very secluded as you travel along a forested ridge top. Most of the ridges are dry in the summer months so be sure to carry plenty of drinking water. The Standley Guard Station is an old cabin that was the site of range studies in the early 1900s . Sheep herds grazed in the area until recent years. The guard station cabin is in good condition, but is not for public use. There are several trails that come together here, making this an excellent spot for a base camp. Connecting trails to the Minam River, North Minam River and Bear Creek can be accessed from the Standley Guard Station.

NW Forest Passes are not required at Bear Wallow Trailhead.

Since this is a ridge top trail, no water is available. Be sure to bring water with you. Mosquitoes can be a problem in meadow areas around the cabin in the early summer months. This trailhead is heavily used by hunters during fall hunting seasons.
