Outside Walla Walla


WALLA WALLA—Outdoor enthusiasts looking for activities surrounding Walla Walla will do well to visit Blue Mountain Land Trust member Gwen Dildine spent the last year and a half building the website that provides information on a multitude of activities in the Blue Mountains.

The site provides information on hiking, biking/cycling, camping, fishing, water sports and snow sports in the area. Adventures can be filtered by proximity to Walla Walla and the level of difficulty desired. Photos and detailed descriptions of campsites, trails, fishing spots and more is readily available.

The website even features a description of Waitsburg and Dayton, following this colorful introduction regarding small town stops:

“Strike up a conversation with the locals—likely they have great tips on area places to visit: where the barn owl was last seen, the trail conditions, where the fishing honey hole is. Who are we kidding—no one is going to tell you their fishing spot. Stick with the birders; they will talk.”

The “Adventures” link even lists suggested itineraries for 48 hour adventure. This website is an excellent resource for enjoying the outdoors in the Blue Mountain Region.
