This hike is a perfect short hike with a nice view of Wallowa Lake and a nice waterfall.  Start hiking on the West Fork of the Wallowa River Trail.  At the 1/2 mile point you will see a sign on the right for the Chief Joseph Trail.   Follow this sign to the right and it will drop down to the Wallowa River.   At the Wallowa River bridge the trail will start climbing with three switchbacks.  After the switchbacks the trail will traverse along the base of Chief Joseph Mountain and shortly it will come to a nice view of the Wallowa Valley and Wallowa Lake. 

At the 1 1/4 mile point the trail will come to BC Falls and a nice place to turnaround.   When there was a bridge crossing BC Creek this trail could be used to go up to the base of Chief Joseph Mountain.   If you do decide to cross BC Creek you will find that the trail is no longer maintained past the falls.  You will find downed trees but very few people tracks.  Cross BC Creek at your own risk.

This trail can be used to connect to the Chief Joseph Marina trail which leads to the Wallowa Lake Marina and the Wallowa lake State Park.  The Chief Joseph Marina trail is described on this Wallowa Lake Resort (Click Here).

The Wallow Lake Resort Resort office is happy to provide free maps for this fun little trail.
