The Eagle Cap Wilderness is one of the oldest wilderness regions in Oregon. At 560 square miles, it is also the largest wilderness in the state. The breathtaking snow-capped peaks and glacially carved high elevation lakes provide the perfect landscape for adventure and outdoor learning. The alpine and subalpine ecosystems support wide-range of plant life, from whitebark pine forest to alpine meadows blanketed with wildflowers. These ecosystems also support a large variety of wildlife, from the elusive pine marten to elk and black bears.
