A short hike near Wallowa Lake State Park, Oregon

We enjoyed a nice little hike one day, about one-mile in each direction, to Upper B.C. Creek Falls along the Chief Joseph Trail. To begin, drive to the end of the main road which dead-ends at the R.P.L. Power plant. The trailhead is on the left, and after registering, you’ll follow the signs along Chief Joseph trail. There is a bit of an incline in the beginning, but soon enough you’ll pass over a bridge,

up a few switchbacks, past some rock slides,

past a viewpoint of Wallowa Lake,

to the “end” of the trail – the waterfall. (There was once a bridge across the falls, but it’s no longer in existence, so this is as far as you can go on this hike.)

My mother grew up in that area, and we have visited a few times. We'd love to take that hike, but I'm afraid Suzy's scooter would have a problem with it. Thanks for showing us some things we haven't seen!
