Hells Canyon National Recreation Area

The more than 600,000 acres of the Hells Canyon NRA straddle the Snake River Canyon and include part of national forests in both Idaho and Oregon. As the Snake River passes through, it follows the deepest gorge in America, dropping almost 8000 feet. With the extreme differences in elevation, the NRA encompasses a wide variety of environments.
