This Little-Known National Forest In Oregon Is A Nature Lover’s Paradise
The Wallowa-Whitman National Forest is a true slice of wilderness, and it’s breathtakingly beautiful. This stunning national forest consists of over two million acres of rugged terrain stretching across northeast Oregon and even into Idaho. The dramatic landscape is full of ancient canyons, glittering rivers, majestic mountain ranges, lake-filled valleys, and more.
There are all kinds of amazing activities to do here, from hiking and camping to boating and biking.
Here's a photo from Pete's Point in the Eagle Cap Wilderness.
It's also a great place for birdwatching and spotting wildlife.
The National Forest is home to wolves, elk, moose, mountain goats, and more. There are also many amazing birds; here's a photo of a beautiful Great Grey Owl.
The views are plentiful, and absolutely jaw-dropping.

One of the many natural wonders you'll find here is the gorgeous Hells Canyon, which happens to be the deepest gorge in the country. (Yep, even deeper than the Grand Canyon!)
Hells Canyon is absolutely jaw-dropping. One great way to see it is by boating down the Snake River (or booking an unforgettable boat tour).
The National Forest is also home to the incredible Eagle Cap Wilderness.
One of the most impressive features of the National Forest is the Eagle Cap Wilderness. This stunning section of the Wallowa Mountains is full of impressive peaks, alpine lakes, and hidden valleys. It's an absolutely amazing place for backpacking and hiking.
There are countless beautiful lakes tucked into the dramatic landscape.
Here's a photo of Phillip's Lake, a beautiful reservoir nestled into the lovely Elkhorn Mountains. It's a great place for boating, swimming, fishing, and more.
One great way to explore the National Forest is taking a road trip on the Hells Canyon Scenic Byway.
