Snowmobiling in Sumpter and Halfway and Unity / Burnt River .
Old man winter transforms the Baker County landscape into a playground each winter with more than 900 miles of snowmobile trails. If snowmobiling is your thing, then Sumpter, Halfway, and Unity are where you want to be.
Sumpter has access to hundreds of miles of groomed trails in the breathtaking Elkhorn Mountains of Eastern Oregon! And....in most cases, you can hit the trails right from your lodging!
In Halfway, the main trail heads right up into the Wallowa Mountains north of town and ends at Twin Lakes in the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest at near 7,000 feet elevation.
From Unity you can explore the Burnt River Canyon, and the Elkhorn mountains while exploring some of Easten Orgon's most spectacular winter scenery.
