Description

Hells Canyon is the perfect final triumphal ending to the mighty Snake river before ultimately draining into the Columbia river.  The canyon is more than 8000 feet deep in places making this canyon deeper than the Grand Canyon.  This is big water in this canyon with lots of class Ii to IV rapids.  Combine excellent whitewater with great camping and scenery and you have a must do trip.
