Experience the Snake River in Hells Canyon


The geologic history of Hell’s Canyon dates back as far as 300 million years. The earliest known settlers were Native Americans, leaving behind pictographs and petroglyphs on the canyon walls, which can still be seen today. In the early 1800’s journal documentation proves that the Lewis and Clark Expedition entered the Hells Canyon Region and towards the later 1800’s an early mining and homesteading boom took place leaving behind historical remnants.
