Wallowa Lake Tramway

Experience the ‘Alps of Oregon’ first-hand in the steepest vertical gondola ride in North America. Open May – September. Wallowa Lake Tramway also operates during the winter months under special occasions!

In just under 15 minutes you are taken on a 3700-foot ascent to the summit of Mt. Howard where you’ll be treated to awe-inspiring views of the Wallowa Valley including the communities of Joseph, Enterprise, Lostine and Wallowa.

Editor’s Note: Take your mountain bike up the gondola for breathtaking views and one heck of a downhill ride down pine-covered hills, glacial moraines, and along gravel and paved roads (as weather permits). Also, Grab some grub and a pint of Terminal Gravity at the Summit Grill, “the Northwest’s highest restaurant.” The alpine patio offers beautiful views overlooking Wallowa Lake and the peaks of the Wallowa Mountains.
