Nez Perce Wallowa Homeland
This 1.5 mile, mixed-terrain route is intended for families, riders seeking beginner routes or those looking to add a visit here to an existing ride. A short paved section leads to a wooden surface bridge crossing the Wallowa River and into the 320-acre Homeland celebration grounds; open sunrise to sunset every day of the year.
Cycle Oregon has a long history of support and connection with Nez Perce Wallowa Homeland Center. We appreciate their support in helping us develop routes in the region so that we may all have a deeper awareness of Nez Perce culture and history, as well as the current mission of the Nez Perce Wallowa Homeland
From the Nez Perce Wallowa Homeland Celebration Grounds:
“We welcome you here in the hopes that you will think about the countless generations before and after you who belong to these lands and waters. Consider this place 100 years ago, and 100 years before that. How you are a part of the story of the next 100 years, here or in your own homeland?”
“This land is owned by a private nonprofit organization of Nez Perce members and other local and regional supporters. As part of our mission we maintain this property as a place to celebrate and perpetuate Nez Perce culture and to strengthen the bonds of friendship among those who call this place home. Tribal members and tribal events are always granted priority use of these grounds. Please respect the privacy of other groups and individuals enjoying this space.”
