Our colleagues at Greater Hells Canyon Council recently dusted off the idea and created the Blue Mountains Trail. The 566-mile trail connects Joseph to John Day and traverses all seven wilderness areas in Northeast Oregon. Still in development, four experienced long-distance hikers spent last fall making two initial thru-hikes of the new route. We'll learn more about this wonder-filled part of the state and hear about the adventures they had from walls of poison oak, traversing deep creeks, and more, all in the name of building a world-class trail system.
