With your Saturn, you may end up stopping and walking the final mile to Brietenbush Lake TH.

You will have no problem getting to the S BB TH. Graveled smoothness.

If we told you, we'd have to kill you.

Just keep looking, then you will have your own secret places.

Re: Hammock Camping in the Eagle Cap Wilderness / Wallowas
