Adventures

Sometimes it is handy hearing a few stories from someone who has been there, done that. Adventures does just that—recounts favorite weekend memories and suggests other stuff to do in the area like where to find the nearest coffee shop (the important stuff). To highlight our natural history, we’ll interview the experts and let you know where you can connect with that history on the land. Adventures is also a great place to share tips on wilderness safety, dive into regulations and why they are important to follow, and pass along new information or books written about our one-of-a-kind area.

By deepening our understanding of the land, we all certainly appreciate it even more. If you are curious about something you observe on the trail or have an idea you’d like us to investigate, please contact us. We would love to share what we find out with our Outside Walla Walla community. As we are discovering, there are countless ways to recreate in our area, and when we exhaust all the possibilities look forward to starting all over again.

Outdoor Rec Meets In-Town Fun userBy Gwen Dildine user0 Comment

One reason this park is so enticing is due to its proximity to other small towns well worth your time exploring: Walla Walla, Waitsburg, and Dayton. The family won’t notice if you sneak out and grab a latte at one of the many little coffee shops. Farmer’s Markets are also a fun way to experience these communities.

While a number of trails are within an hour and a half of downtown Walla Walla, sometimes that is still just too far to go play in the mountains for a few hours. The West Tiger Creek Trail is less than thirty miles from town and offers a short, easy trail for the whole family to enjoy. Given its low elevation, we recommend hiking this trail year-round to experience all four seasons.

There is really so much to do in and around the Tollgate, Oregon area. Enjoy a hike in the North Fork Umatilla Wilderness Area; camp at any one of the many campgrounds; paddleboard at Jubilee Lake; or snowshoe at the Horseshoe Prairie Nordic Ski Area. This is a four season outdoor recreation destination.
