We went as a group of 5 couples. This was so much fun! It was pouring down rain and we all could have cared less. The people who run this are great and we saw lots of deer. So much fun!

We took the minam to Wallowa trip. Really enjoyed the relaxed and hands off approach that super guide Molly had. I would definitely recommend to my moderately active friends, especially those who love trains as I do.

We had a blast on the Joseph Railriders tour! Went in the late afternoon and had lovely light over the Wallowa Mountains. My teenage daughter loved it too.

Eastern Oregon has plenty of great outdoor activities with beautiful views. However, pedaling the rails from Joseph to Enterprise and back was such a unique experience. The guides were great coaches and gave a boost when needed.

Riding the rails is a fun experience! We enjoyed savoring the beautiful scenery as we coasted downhill, then had a great time as we exercised coming uphill. As first timers, we opted for the 2 hour trip, but we’ll definitely be back to do the...More
