The Eagle Cap Wilderness is the largest wilderness area in Oregon. It's basically in Idaho and in the middle of nowhere. The trailhead is also about 8 hours from Portland, so we recommend you give yourself at least 3 days to enjoy the mountains here when you come.
We were 9 days deep into the Himalayas. Hiking on average about 6 hours a day. And on April 11th, 2017 I was 17,598ft in the sky, at the base of the largest mountain in the world. I celebrated with my wonderful group of trekking partners and our two guides I met from Himalayan Wonders. We all had made it. How, you ask? A strong combination of desire, jokes, and knowing what to pack.
