  • The Hells Canyon National Recreation Area, in the remote northeast corner of Oregon, is part of the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest and is between the borders of northeastern Oregon and western Idaho. The area encompasses 652,488 scenic acres and over 900 miles of trails. In its deepest part, Hells Canyon drops 8,000 feet to the Snake River, making it the deepest river gorge in North America. Hells Canyon must be one of the most remote places in the Pacific Northwest you can dare to venture in. The canyon is spectacular and lives up to its grandeur as being the deepest river gorge in North America. I only saw a small glimpse of the area while on my trip, but I could see that the canyon went on for miles. This is certainly a place I plan to explore further, especially the famed Seven Devils. I would recommend Hells Canyon as a top hiking and photography destination in Oregon and since the area is so vast, you truly can pick any adventure you like and make it your own. With its mountain vistas and steep canyon drops, Hells Canyon is prime for landscape photographers looking for dramatic skies and unrestrained views. I encourage you to explore Oregon and make your own adventure.
  • What an amazing drive for a pic nic always so beautiful.
  • I lived in Hells Canyon , Oxbow village actually for 13 years while my father supervised the building of the 3 dams. For a tomboy it was heaven, fishing, hiking, riding horses, hunting, finding arrowheads ... Heaven in beautiful rugged Hells Canyon!!!!!!
  • It’s pure hell if you hike in there. You will feel misery you never known. If you make it out you will have a story to tell for the rest of your life.
  • Wow! You must be intentional to get there and it is worth it.
