Beginning at over 8,000 feet elevation and crossing one of the highest trail passes in the Wallowa Mountains the Polaris Pass Trail connects the North Fork Imnaha River Trail with the West Fork Wallowa River Trail. Fabulous views greet the hiker along almost every foot of this challenging route. (Trail 1831) Polaris Pass Trail leaves North Fork Imnaha River Trail (1814) and heads southwest through open alpine terrain. It drops slightly at first, then climbs in an ascending traverse for nearly 2 miles.
