We’ve partnered with Roadtrippers to provide a great way to plan a trip around Oregon. So start planning your next road trip to here, there or pretty much anywhere in Oregon.

The lightly traveled Alta Lake Trail begins at Wallowa Creek and climbs two miles to the open forestland on the south slope of Gopher Ridge. The trail then continues on to junction with the Middle Fork, King Spruce, and Seven Lakes Trails. Good camping areas are present both to the east and west of Alta Lake on high ground. There is no horse feed available at Alta Lake. Water is present only at Boulder Pond and Alta Lake and Boulder Pond may be dry by September. Visitors should be aware that water in the wilderness and backcountry areas might not be safe to drink. Water is not tested and should be purified before drinking.

NOTE: Always camp at least 100 feet from lakes, streams, and trails. Please practice “no-trace” camping. This will increase the carrying capacity of the land and allow each visitor a chance to experience the solitude they seek in this special area.
