The area is known for unexpected avalanches, which at times have caused fatalities. The area is typically covered in snow as early as October and has become a popular cross-country skiing destination. Guided tours are available, some tours utilize the cabins at the lake. Aneroid Lake is a large tarn located on Aneroid Mountain in the Eagle Cap Wilderness of Northeastern Oregon. It is situated in between Roger Lake and Dollar Lake. It is not accessible by any kind of motor vehicle. There is a small group of private cabins and Pete's Point is clearly visible.Show more

Beautiful loop through the Eagle Cap Wilderness by circumnavigating Eagle Cap itself. The views are everywhere as you work your way up and down the glacial valleys and over three different mountain passes. Numerous lakes dot the Lake Basins area for some exploring. The trail here is very rocky for the majority of the trek and there is little shade along the route. Water is plentiful, however, so there is plenty of opportunity to fill your bladders or take a quick dip. Show more
