The Wallowas—too unique, too beautiful,
too unforgettable not to experience!
Welcome to the Heart of Hells Canyon Scenic Byway in the majestic Wallowa Mountains of NE Oregon! This is Oregon’s secret getaway, Beautiful Wallowa Lake and Joseph OR.
The Eagle Cap is Oregon’s largest wilderness. You can hike the stunning alpine country of the Eagle Cap or the rugged Hells Canyon country, both are rich in wildlife, pristine fishing and breathtaking views. Not ready for a hike? Take a gondola ride. This brisk ride will take you to the top of the mountains above Wallowa Lake, where you will get a birds-eye view of the Eagle Cap and the Seven Devils.
The beauty of this area is an absolute sanctuary for artists. Wallowa Valley is referred to as the Valley of Bronze. Joseph Main Street Art Walk is lined with magnificent, life size bronze sculptures. There are so many foundries and galleries throughout this Valley you will need a full day to see it all. This is especially true if you choose to explore the many unique gift boutiques, antique stores, fine jewelry, outdoor sports stores, and other small cottage-like businesses scattered throughout the valley in each town. It's a treasure hunt.
Yes, Wander the Wallowas! The clean, fresh mountain air, and crystal clear-flowing rivers and streams offer a welcome respite for visitors who come to Wallowa County – It’s a way of living and one mega adventure!
