General Information

Description - The canyon rises steeply on both sides of the road and is frequented by deer, elk and bear. The slopes of the canyon are forested primarily with pine. Flowers are abundant in the spring.

Attractions - This day-use site is located along the Wallowa River and is a popular fishing and wildlife viewing area. Steelhead fishing is good during the spring and fall. The Wallowa River is clear, cold and popular with fly fishing enthusiasts because it can be waded in many locations.

Vital stats: There is no fee to use this park.

Recreation - This park provides opportunities for picnicking, fishing, viewing wildlife and enjoying nature.

Climate - Climate in Eastern Oregon varies greatly with elevation. The higher elevations experience colder temperatures and higher precipitation than the lower elevations. The region is much more arid and experiences greater temperature variations than western Oregon. Much of Eastern Oregon is considered high desert, where in some areas annual precipitation is less than 10 inches. Summer temperatures often reach 90 degrees in the lower elevations. Winters can be bitterly cold here, although there is little humidity. The mountains can receive heavy snowfall. If visiting the region during the summer months be prepared for afternoon thunderstorms and chilly evening temperatures. Snow may be encountered on high country trails throughout the summer months.

Location - Wallowa Lake Highway Forest State Scenic Corridor is located in Eastern Oregon, off OR 82, 12 miles west of Enterprise.
