Very muddy in places and still quite a bit of snow cover. Beautiful outlook areas!

Beautiful views. It’s a short hike, but gorgeous. Parts of the trail were covered in snow and snowmelt water.

Cost $35 to ride the tram up. Great vistas and well maintained trails. A lot of tourist that don't respect staying on the trails and feed the wildlife.

Felt like I was back on top of Mt. Blanc! Incredible views worth the ride price.

This is an easy hike with incredible views at the top of Mt. Howard. It’s a tram ride up and down the mountain. It was a gorgeous day today, sunny and breezy. Burgers and brews at the top. Fun but not hardcore hiking!

First to Review

Our AirBnB host told us that the Wallowas are known as the “Swiss Alps” of Oregon. According to Travel Oregon, these mountains contain 49 peaks over 8,000 feet. Granted there’s a ton of things to do within this mountain range and in the resident city of Joseph. The fastest way to see most of it is to take the Wallowa Lake Tramway for $35. What REALLY blew me away was Wallowa Lake that you’ll see going up. From the summit, there’s a looped hike that you can do for different viewpoints. When we went, the viewpoints to the north were closed due to snow. Dress warm and wear hiking shoes since you might have to hike through some snow and it could get pretty cold even though it’s summer.
