Drove the road to the dam...spectacular scenery...only a few towns on the way but as you approach the dam the cliffs rising from the green hued water against the blue sky is not to be missed...we wondered what it would be like to come in the late spring to see the numerous streams running down the almost vertical cliffs. We... 更多
This is a must! Someone said can't do in a day-nonsense I went to from Baker City to Hells Canyon,back to route 39, up to Joseph,and back to Baker City in a easy day. Someone else said it was frightening,not true easy drive. I have done a lot of the great ones out west,and trust me,this is one not to... 更多
We did this drive in one day from Baker City and back. Too much for one day, I would recommend doing it in 2-3 days. The Hells Canyon Overlook was a scary drive for me but the view was gorgeous! For National forest service roads they were all paved and well maintained! Our kids got kind of bored though.
I've heard about the beauty and power of Hells Canyon for years and on our drive from Mcall, ID to Walla Walla, WA we decided to make a detour. We found it very confusing to figure out how to get there/what we'd see since OR, WA and ID tourist bureaus are all pushing their routes and TripAdvisor has multiple "Where... 更多
This was getting to the end of our tour of Oregon and we were surprised again of the beauty of the State. We had planned to do it in a day, but not a chance. With plenty of overviews we took two days and it was well worth the effort. So much to see.
It's hard to describe the beauty - the sheer canyon walls, the deep green water above the dam and the river below. Try to capture the depth and height of what you see with a camera - it doesn't work. Take time to enjoy the view with your eyes only! Along the way were some wild peach and possibly wild... 更多
Beautiful Oregon (and Idaho) scenery. Well worth the drive. It took two days to fully cover (Enterprise / Joseph / Hells Canyon Overlook - the North side on Day 1, Halfway / Hells Canyon / Snake River Dams (3 of them) - the South side on Day 2). Roads are fine (except construction on NF-39 at time of writing).
When you travel in the Enterprise-Joseph area of Oregon, you will be on this scenic route. The views are awesome! The Wallowas are one of the "Seven Wonders of Oregon," which you will see all along this route. There are some side roads leading to other areas to explore. Every part of the byway has postcard scenery. To see most... 更多
