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. 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.

The hike up was pretty nice. The views along the way were stunning, but the lake... spectacular.

Beautiful trial! Go in the early morning so you could enjoy the scenery more before you need to return down to wallowa.

Great hike, beautiful views, varied terrain. There was still some snow on the trail but it was passable with a little side stepping.

This was a beautiful hike the whole way with the gorgeous reward of Aneroid lake at the end. First two miles are steepish but after that it gently climbs. We did this on 6/22/18. Small snow patches up near the lake. The top 3 miles of the trail are ok for somewhat technical trail running. We ran down from the lake for about 4 miles but that last mile was we’re rocky.

Lovely! Very easy to follow trail, steep start to great views of wallowa lake, pretty meadows, and finally aneroid lake at the top! Really pretty this time of year (late July) and I would love to see what it looks like with more snow.

Amazing views, giant rushing glacial water that flows into the lake, emerald waters. Plan to stay overnight and enjoy
