Visit Lostine, Oregon
Lostine is the gateway to Lostine River and many of the trailheads into the Eagle Cap Wilderness. Recommended trails: Maxwell Lake and the East Fork Lostine River to the Lake Basin Area.
The theme of Lostine is century old businesses. Both the M. Crow General Store and the Lostine Tavern (LT) have been in business for over a hundred years. Of course the LT now serves farm to table cuisine and M. Crow not only sells groceries, hardware, clothing, sporting goods and a lot more, it serves as the social hub and soul of the small but tight-knit Lostine community.
Lostine is a hot little hub in Wallowa County and yet has a population of less than 200 (including cats and dogs). Be sure to put the Blue Banana Coffee House and June's Country Market as a must see and do for Lostine.
Visit Wallowa, Oregon
Here is a community that enjoys Wallowa just as it is! Wallowa is much like you would have found it back in the days of a thriving timber industry, but today it is supported by agriculture and small industry.
Wallowa is proud of its multi-cultural history in the county. The Wallowa Band Nez Perce Trail Interpretive Center is located in this town, along with the famed July TamKaLiks Celebration. This annual pow wow shares in intense worship, dance, drumming, and feasting.
Outdoor recreation is as wild and scenic as the rivers in the lower Wallowa Valley including the Minam Area; where the Wallowa and Minam rivers join together and flow down to the rugged Grande Ronde Country. This area is a Mecca for fly fishing, river rafting, wildlife, and outdoor exploration!
Another unique and historic gem found just outside of Wallowa is the multi-cultural site of the Maxville logging town. There may be only remnants of a ghost town today, but what a legendary story from the past.
