This is a trail fragment that will be finished later. West Fork is a super highway of trails. It perhaps gets the most trail users of any trail in the Wallowas with its close proximity to the ever popular Wallowa Lake. The first few miles get the most action and it serves as a route to access the Ice Lake Trail and some of the climbs of the high Wallowas. Parking to start the trail is at the Little Alps Day Use area at the very south end of the road. Trail Notes 0.0 mi. Start at Little Alps Day Use Area.
