Day 4 – September 16: Halfway to Wallowa Lake
“Highway to Hell” 78 or 84 miles
Saddle up and prepare for the ride of a lifetime. The climb from Pine Valley to the High Wallowas is the most memorable we’ve ever laid wheels on. We’ll ascend through the pine-scented shade of the Wallowa National Forest and summit to the Hells Canyon Overlook. To call it spectacular would be an understatement. Go ahead, take in the view. On a clear day, they say you can see Chicago. After a couple more climbs and screaming descents, we’ll roll past the town of Joseph to the base of the “Alps of Oregon” and settle in for the night beside Wallowa Lake.
