The Gorgeous 1.5-Mile Hike In Oregon’s Wallowas That Will Lead You Past A Mountain Summit

Oregon is full of the most beautiful hikes in the country (not that we’re biased or anything), but this hike in the Wallowas just might the the most magnificent. Surrounded by the lush forests, glacial lakes, and the wide expanse of Eastern Oregon, the Wallowas are one of the state’s most resplendent treasures. Colloquially called the “Alps of Oregon,”  the Wallowa Mountains are breathtakingly beautiful; and what makes this area even more special is how very accessible it is. Case in point: the Wallowas Tramway Summit Trail, a 1.5-mile hike past a mountain summit that will take your breath away.
