Adventures 

Wander Women Adventures take place in Eastern Oregon, on the traditional and ancestral homelands of the Cayuse, Umatilla, Walla Walla, and Nimiipuu (Nez Perce) indigenous nations, who have lived in these beautiful areas for centuries. We recognize that, as settlers of these lands, our recreation is possible because of the sacrifices forced upon these peoples. In recognizing the original inhabitants of these lands we strive to honor their lives and their legacy.

Wild & Scenic North Fork John Day River

Hike along the banks of the Wild & Scenic North Fork of the John Day River, where it spills out from the heights of the Elkhorn Crest Mountains. We’ll be in the remote John Day Wilderness, where you’ll take in the majesty of the wild river, see wildflowers in bloom, and walk through fragrant pine forest.

Each night we’ll camp beside the cool, clear river, and we may even spot elk grazing in the meadows. The trail is moderate, with some hills but no significant climbs as it stays along the river. We’ll be hiking at elevations above 5,000ft, which will feel easy with the support of your fellow Wander Women!  You won’t want to miss out on this chance to experience some of the best scenery in all of Oregon!

Imnaha River Canyon

The route is moderate and fairly flat, with an option to add a loop up into the higher parts of the Wallowa Mountains. This is the longest and most remote trip we run, which also makes it the most rewarding! The trailhead is ~7hrs from Portland, so we’ll camp near the trailhead on  the first day.  You won’t want to miss out on this chance to experience some of the best scenery in all of Oregon!
