The next time you go for a walk in the woods-specifically on a U.S. Forest Service Trail in the Eagle Cap Wilderness or Hells Canyon-- you might consider pausing at one of those big, fallen trees that used to block the trail and silently thank the hard-working volunteers from Wallowa and Union Counties who keep the trails open. Without their efforts, and a supporting cast of horses, mules, volunteer pilots and other team members, those trails would likely be cluttered with prickly brush, big logs and ankle-rolling rocks. But thanks to the Wallowa Mountains Hells Canyon Trails Association (WMHCTA) and their partners, your horseback ride will be hazard-free, and you won't have to vault over logs, trip over displaced stones, or squeeze thru brambles on your next iPhone-powered, music-infused trail run.
