Explore the beauty of Northeastern Oregon for four days on the Grande Ronde and Wallowa Rivers. The remote feeling, big mountain scenery, and diverse wildlife provides for an excellent river trip. With the river flowing from the Wallowa Mountains, this float is perfect for the spring and early summer.
The wildlife diversity on the Grande Ronde will be something to write home about. There are large herds of elk, playful, swimming otters, bighorn sheep, mountain goat, coyote, bald eagles, mergansers, chinook, steelhead, rainbow trout, mule deer, whitetail deer and more. The mellow pace of the river allows for lots of time to search for these animals throughout the day and at camp.
Around each river bend seems to be a new side creek flowing into the Grande Ronde. These creeks present some opportunities to hike up and possible get above the river for some stunning canyon views. Occasionally, the dense brush and steep terrain will make these hikes hard but still doable for the adventurous rafters.
In addition to the wonderful days on the water, the nights at camp make the trip even more quality. The numerous large ponderosa pine bars make excellent camps, with the best views around.
