Aneroid Mountain

Aneroid Mountain Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Wallowa Mountains are the dominant range of northeastern Oregon. Aneroid Mountain is the easternmost peak of the high Wallowas. Nearby Aneroid Lake is a popular destination for day hikers and backpackers, and Aneroid Mountain has an easy approach from the lake area.

The symmetric mountain dominates the surrounding high meadows and offers commanding views north of East Peak and Mount Howard. This scramble has delightful alpine wildflowers on the approach, whitebark and limber pine on the ridge, and views of the many lakes and tarns in this region of the wilderness. Expect solitude, too; once you leave the Aneroid Lake area you probably will not encounter many other people. Special considerations: Self-issue permits are available at trailheads for entrance into the Eagle Cap Wilderness; please register and read the wilderness regulations."

"A moderate scramble leads up Aneroid Mountain from East Fork Wallowa River Trail. From Aneroid Mountain, the fourth-highest peak in the Wallowas, the view is absolutely superb in all directions. In summer (August) flowers cover the alpine terrain. Just below the summit on the south side of the peak are a scattering of scruffy White-bark Pines. These little trees are living at the highest elevation of any trees in Oregon." Read more
