This hike from near Wallowa Lake, heads into the Eagle Cap Wilderness and arrives at Aneroid Lake. The trial is fairly steep at the start, but mellows out about halfway to the lake. Roger Lake is passed just before reading Aneroid Lake. A group of private cabins are at the south end of the lake. Aneroid Mountain and Pete's Point are nearby. Notes
  • Weather information is available at the SNOTEL site near the lake
  • A short ways up the trail, stay left to switchback up the mountain. The trail
  • This is a fun location for alpine ski touring, but avalanche awareness is needed due to the fatalities of 1981 and 2009.
  • Trailhead: The East Fork Wallowa River Trailhead starts at the very south end of the road beyond Wallowa Lake.
