Roger Lake (also called Rogers Lake or Rogers Pond) is a mountain pond located in a meadow on Aneroid Mountain in the Eagle Cap Wilderness of Northeastern Oregon, United States. It is 0.5 miles (0.8 km) from Aneroid Lake on trail 1804.[1] It is listed as the 29th highest lake in the Eagle Cap Wilderness[2]

Trail[edit]

Roger Lake can be accessed by either the East Fork Wallowa River Trailhead at Wallowa Lake or the Tenderfoot Trailhead. The East Fork Wallowa River Trailhead is by far a shorter hike to Roger Lake, being only 5.5 miles (8.9 km) long. After about 2 miles (3 km) of hiking on the East Fork Wallowa River Trail, the climber will reach a small dam. At 3.8 miles (6.1 km) there is a small, well built bridge. The average depth of the lake is 30 feet (9 m), and the maximum depth is 46 feet (14 m). The trail is usually very well maintained.[3] It may be heavily traveled in the summer months.[4]
