Imnaha is a small community located in northeast Oregon at the confluence of the Little Sheep Creek and the Imnaha River. It is part of Wallowa County, situated at an elevation of 1,965 feet. The population is approximately 180 (including nearby ranches.) The closest larger city is Joseph, Oregon, about 30 miles west of Imnaha. Oregon Route 350 connects the two communities. Imnaha is definitely an area for nature lovers who like to get away from it all. Tucked into the northeast corner of the state, the whole county is home to only 7,000 residents. Wallowa County is surrounded by incredible natural beauty and boasts Oregon's largest wilderness area, the clearest lake, deepest gorge and greenest of valleys. Highlights include Wallowa Lake and the Hells Canyon Scenic Byway. Wallowa Lake is a crystal-clear glacier lake formed about 9 million years ago. It offers excellent trout fishing, canoeing, camping and a trail head that takes you deep into the Eagle Cap Wilderness, which is Oregon's largest wilderness area. Wallowa County is also filled with many miles of hiking and cycling trails, and opportunities for wildlife viewing and photography, birding, fly fishing on the Snake River, rafting, kayaking, horseback riding, and skiing and snowboarding. Imnaha is also near Hells Canyon Recreation Area, one of the state's most rugged natural areas.

Imnaha Weather & Climate

Mountains that protect the valley from the most severe aspects of weather encircle northeastern Oregon, near Wallowa Lake and the Eagle Cap Wilderness Area. The mountains also prevent moisture from reaching the valley, so it has a fairly dry climate. Most of the precipitation in the area occurs in fall and winter, and varies from just over seven inches in the valley up to 60 inches in the mountains. Summers are warm and pleasant with low humidity. Thunderstorms are possible in spring and summer. Heavy snowfall in the high mountains produces snow packs that remain all year long on the higher peaks. Light snow can be expected in the valley regions from late November to early April. January is usually the coldest month and July is the hottest.
