Hiking Hells Canyon & Idaho's Seven Devils Mountains (Falcon Guides Hiking)
Synopses & Reviews
Lace up your boots and sample some of the finest trails through Hells Canyon, a National Recreation Area of cavernous gorges, timbered plateau, ridgetop meadows, and mountain wilderness that divides the remote northeast corner of Oregon from the mountains of central Idaho. Visit historic sites, backpack through the depths of the canyon, explore the arid banks of the turbulent Snake River, or climb the alpine summits of the Seven Devils Mountains that overlook a dramatic landscape. Veteran hiker and outdoor writer Fred Barstad will introduce you to these trails and more. Use this guide for up-to-date trail information, accurate directions to popular as well as less-traveled trails, difficulty ratings for each hike, detailed trail maps, and zero-impact camping tips. Whether you are a day-tripper or long-distance hiker, old hand or novice, you'll find trails suited to every ability and interest throughout Hells Canyon and the Seven Devils Mountains.
