Wallowa Lake Tramway

Another great view

Wallowa Lake Tramway Review

The steepest tram in North America rises 3,700 feet in 15 minutes, rushing you up to the top of 8,150-foot Mt. Howard. Vistas of mountain peaks, forest, and Wallowa Lake far below will dazzle you, both on the way up and at the summit. Early and late in the season, 2½ mi of cross-country skiing trails await at the top, and the interpretive trails are open for hiking during the snowless months of midsummer. Enjoy casual lunch with great views at the Summit Grill and Alpine Patio before making your return trip back down to earth.
