Baker man hurt in ATV wreck

A 76-year-old Baker City man was flown out of the Wallowa Mountains Monday night with injuries he sustained when he rolled his four-wheeler as he traveled down a steep hillside.

Charles Leon Dale lost control of the four-wheeler on O’Brien Creek off Main Eagle Creek near Boulder Park. Sheriff Mitch Southwick said the four-wheeler hit a tree and rolled over Dale in the crash. 

Friends Dale was riding with were able to call out for help. Seven volunteers with the Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Team, the sheriff, a deputy and an Eagle Valley Ambulance crew were dispatched about 3 p.m., Southwick said.

A member of the LifeFlight medical team said Dale probably would be stabilized at the La Grande hospital for possible transport elsewhere, the sheriff said. Information about his condition was not available in time for this report.

Forest Service eases trail restrictions in Eagle Cap Wilderness


The Wallowa-Whitman National Forest has re-opened two trails in the Eagle Cap Wilderness, and will re-open a third on Thursday at 8 a.m.

All three trails had been closed since early July due to wildfires.

Cougar Ridge and Bearwallow trails are open now.

The Hurricane Creek trail remains closed between the trailhead and the junction with the Echo Lake trail, but that section will re-open Thursday at 8 a.m.

At that time, however, the area east of the Hurricane Creek trail will be closed to the public.
