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.

Have done this hike several times, carried my daughter in the pack a couple times. My then 8 year old son did the hike and was ahead of me running the whole time!

This is the current Wallow Lake East Moraine Trial as determined by the City of Joseph. (2017, cite: https://www.wallowalandtrust.org/images/stories/land_protection/East-Moraine-Trails-Plan_draft.pdf). The first few hundred feet are killer on the quads as the trail boldly takes you straight up the moraine incline. As of August 2017 there was no specifically determined trail up the incline from the trailhead. We made our own switchbacks, being careful not to further erode any worn spots. Poles were mighty helpful, and certainly so coming down! Once you crest the moraine, the remaining incline is fairly gentle and allows for wonderful views of the Wallowas and Wallowa Lake. We headed up in the evening and descended westward at sunset. Very nice trail, a great scramble for kiddos, and big thanks to the City of Joseph for working to provide the public with a specific place to view the sites.

Totally Awesome hike we did this JUNE 5TH and there was a lot of snow on the trail, definitely bring Yaktrax and Crampons and an Ice Ax if going beyond the lake!

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
