Hells Canyon - which this byway is named after - is North America’s deepest river gorge and encompasses a vast and remote region with dramatic changes in elevation, terrain, climate and vegetation. When Congress passed the Wild and Scenic River Act in 1975, 31.5 miles of the Snake River from Hells Canyon to Upper Pittsburghh Landing (near White Bird) were designated ‘wild’. This river also has a ‘scenic’ designation for the 36 miles below Pittsburgh Landing, heading north. The total 75 mile stretch of the ‘Wild and Scenic’ Snake River from the Hells Canyon Dam northward for 75 miles to the Washington-Oregon border is largely inaccessible except by river craft.
Carved by the great Snake River, Hells Canyon plunges 8,000 feet below snowcapped He Devil Peak of the Seven Devils Mountains. It attracts whitewater rafters, jetboaters, hikers, campers and outdoor adventurers worldwide.
