Enjoy trails dedicated for ATV and ORV use, or use pedal power for mountain bike trails. Horseback riders, hikers, snowshoers and cross-country skiers can also enjoy marked trails, offering both gentle routes and challenging terrain. Whatever your mode of transportation, the views of the Grande Ronde Valley and the Eagle Cap Wilderness from the flanks of Mount Emily are breathtaking.\r\n\r\n\r\n

MERA is open year ‘round for hiking, trail running, mountain biking, and equestrian use. Wildflowers are typically in full bloom from April to June. Deer, elk, black bears, and many species of birds and other wildlife inhabit MERA year ‘round. Generally, trails are snow-free from March through November. In the winter months, backcountry skiing and snowshoeing is popular in the mid- to high-elevations. Ski routes range from low angled climbs and descents along double track roads and open areas to very steep black diamond runs through glades and natural openings.<\/p>\r\n

With nearly 12 miles of single track, non-motorized trails, mountain cyclists, trail runners, hikers, and equestrians enjoy challenging terrain. Another 12 miles of double track trails, which are typically unimproved roads that are closed to motorized travel, are also available.<\/p>\r\n

\"Maxville\" was the railroad logging town that existed about 15 miles north of Wallowa, Oregon. The Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center serves as a platform to unify multiple cultures through educational programs, exhibits, and events. The Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center seeks to gather, catalog, preserve, and interpret the rich history of the multicultural logging community of Maxville, Oregon as well as similar communities in the Pacific Northwest.<\/p>\r\n

Maxville itself operated until the early 1930s and was unique in that it included 50 or so African Americans and their families and was home to the only segregated school in Oregon. Previously, historic records only made small mention of these African-Americans. In the last three years, the Maxville Heritage Project has fostered a reawakening of interest in this rich chapter of history through public lectures and school visits, an Elder-hostel lecture, AP articles and an OPB broadcast spotlighting this unique local history. With the ground swell of historic artifacts and stories emerging from descendants and those with relationships to people from Maxville, a large number of video, image, audio and textual digital files, and hard copy images have been collected.<\/p>\r\n

Displays include information about the loggin and railroad industry from Early 1920s-1940s.<\/p>","post_name":"maxville-heritage-interpretive-center","post_type":"resource","slug":"attractions","name":"Attractions","lat":"45.3553","lng":"-117.23","permalink":"\/see-do\/oregon-heritage\/history-heritage\/hertitage-museum\/old-west-oregon-trail-heritage\/maxville-heritage-interpretive-center\/"},{"ID":"581711","post_title":"Nez Perce Homeland Project Exhibit","post_content":"

Wallowa Lake rests in the shadow of the majestic Wallowa Mountains, just south of the town of Joseph. Formed by a glacier roughly nine million years ago, the lake is five-miles long, a mile wide, and reaches depths of nearly 300 feet. Wallowa Lake’s beauty and recreational possibilities have been recognized for generations; the first hotel, restaurants and dance hall were established here in 1880! Today, visitors come to fish for the lake’s kokanee and rainbow trout, to waterski and even parasail. (The Wallowa River, which feeds and drains from Wallowa Lake, is also popular with trout anglers.) The Eagle Cap Wilderness Area borders the lake on the south, and offers tremendous hiking opportunities; mini golf, go-karts and paddle boats are available nearby for kids young and old. If you want to scale a mountain but aren’t quite ready for a climb, the Wallowa Lake Tramway climbs 3,700 feet to the summit of Mount Howard, at 8,150 feet. Marina services, camping and lodging are available at the lake.
