Wallowa Mountains - Hells Canyon Trails Association

The Wallowa Mountains Hells Canyon Trails Association (WMHCTA)  are a dedicated group of hikers and outdoor enthusiasts who monitor and help maintain our local trails in Hells Canyon and the Wallowa Mountains.

We coordinate with the US Forest Service and organize volunteer work parties to clear downed trees, cut back brush, and do whatever else is necessary to keep our local hiking trails open and accessible.

You can help by joining us on a trail maintenance project, coming to one of our meetings, or donating to support the effort.


Check the trail conditions before you hike...

(Please note that trail conditions on the below web pages may not be up-to-date)

                        ... and tell us how the trail was! 

Download and print our Trail Assessment Form to take with you, then return the completed form or simply send the trail number with a brief description of trail conditions. Photos are welcome but not required!
