East Fork Lostine Trail 1662 Professional Reviews and Guides

"This trail, suitable for a day hike or backpack, leads from Two Pan Trailhead to Mirror Lake. The East Fork Lostine River Trail is one of the most scenic hikes in the Wallowas. Head south from the parking area. Follow the trail 200 yards south to the wilderness boundary and the junction with the West Fork Lostine River Trail. Another trail from the south side of the large parking area connects with the main trail just before the junction.

Bear left at the junction. From here the trail climbs for 1 mile to a single log bridge crossing the East Fork of the Lostine River. The trail continues to climb, making a couple of switchbacks on an open boulder-strewn hillside, then makes a couple more switchbacks and comes out in a level area 2 miles from the trailhead (6,850 ft.). You get a good view of Hurricane Divide to the east from the switchbacks on the open hillside."

"This trail, suitable for a day hike or backpack, leads from Two Pan Trailhead to Mirror Lake. The East Fork Lostine River Trail is one of the most scenic hikes in the Wallowas. The route climbs into a textbook perfect example of a U-shaped glacial valley, with light colored cliffs on both sides and meadows traversed by a stream in the bottom. (Trail 1662)
