The Wallowa -Whitman National Forest contains 2.3 million acres ranging in elevation from 875 feet in Hells Canyon, to 9845 feet in the Eagle Cap Wilderness.

Hells Canyon National Recreation Area (HCNRA) straddles the Snake River which forms the boundary between Idaho and Oregon and encompasses 652,488-acres. The Hells Canyon Wilderness comprises nearly 215,000 acres within the HCNRA. The HCNRA, Oregon side, has 15 campgrounds that are located in four distinct and separate areas.

The Wallowa-Whitman National Forest contains portions of four designated Wilderness Areas. Visitors to the Hells Canyon Wilderness can ramble among 9,300 foot alpine peaks before descending 7,000 feet to desert like river bottoms on trails that crisscross open grassy benches and thickly timbered draws; trails that cross level flats and fade into the horizon and steep narrow trails that were blasted into sheer rock bluffs. There are approximately 360 miles of trails scattered throughout the wilderness. In Idaho, backpackers are the dominant recreational group between June to September with the alpine lakes of the Seven Devil Mountains being the main attraction. Equestrians dominate the Oregon side with heaviest use associated with spring and fall big game hunt season. However, the lower elevations offer wilderness recreational opportunities year round.

The Eagle Cap Wilderness lies in the heart of the Wallowa Mountains in northeastern Oregon. It is characterized by high alpine lakes and meadows, bare granite peaks and ridges, and U-shaped glaciated valleys. Hikers and horseback riders can choose from approximately 534 miles of trails.

From rolling bench lands to the granite outcrops of the Greenhorn Mountains, the rugged North Forest John Day Wilderness provides diverse landscapes. Much of the wilderness is composed of gentle bench lands and tablelands; the remaining of steep ridges and alpine lake basins. A continuous vegetative canopy covers most of the land, including dense virgin stands of conifer species like Douglas-fir, white fir, western larch and lodgepole pine.

In the Monument Rock Wilderness, at the southernmost edge of the Blue Mountains, the area’s alpine, once-glaciated ridges offer views across much of eastern Oregon. Hunting is the most popular activity, with hiking and backpacking increasing in popularity. Table Rock Lookout draws many visitors and is one of the entry points to the Wilderness.

Our ranch is located in the Wallowa Valley at the base of the Eagle Cap Wilderness. Over the past 125 years, generations of our family have produced their own food in addition to a dairy operation, hogs, beef and sheep. Twenty years ago, we broke from tradition and bought our first Corriente cattle to make better use of some rugged terrain on our ranch. It wasn’t long after that we sold all our Angus and continued to build our 100% registered Corriente herd of cattle that we own today.
