Wallowa backpack trip with teens
Return to Message Board
I would like to introduce my husband and preteen/teen kids to backpacking via a 3-4 night trip starting from Wallowa Lake and including an opportunity to summit Eagle Cap. In my perfect (imaginary) trip, we would not necessarily move every day but would spend one or more days at a "base camp" and explore via day hikes. All are fairly fit and have hiking and camping experience (just no multi-day back trips), but, of course, kids don't tend to have the mental toughness to push on when tired that adults do. Any suggested routes or guidebooks?
