The Wallowa Hike follows walking trails from Gate 1, off Tanunda Creek Road, to the Heysen Trail. Following the Heysen Trail, there is a lookout sidetrip at Gate PV1 which offers views to Pewsey Vale and Kaiserstuhl.
Throughout the park are many interesting rock formations, including Horses Head Rock.
The walking trail on the lookout side can be harder to identify since the commercial forest was felled, but the trip is short and rewarding. The map shows the walking trail, which is signposted and leads to the lookout in native scrub.
The official Wallowa Hike is an out-and-back hike from Gate 1, to Gate PV2, Gate PV1 and out to Gate 2, before returning along the same route. This is the hike rated as Moderate. You can make the hike a loop walk by following an unmarked trail which leaves the Heysen Trail between Horses Head Rock and Gate 2, which would make the hike a Hard Hike or Trek rating. The trail entrance can be difficult to spot, and there are several false trails within the first few hundred metres, but then the trail settles down and is fairly easy to follow, although can be overgrown in places. At the lower end of the trail it becomes faint in the open areas before meeting the main loop of the Stringybark Hike. We recommend hiking clockwise, as the faint trail is more easily followed from west to east.
