Wow!

An incredibly beautiful area. It is rugged and feels so wild. Plan to take your time driving up 17 Mile road (takes about an hour to get here from Riggins!). The views are spectacular and easy to find. There are some areas that can be pretty dry and hot, so make sure to plan ahead and bring lots of water. There are several hikes that can be done in a single day or stretched out to multi day trips that go along mountaintops and alpine lakes. I have never seen more than a handful of other groups out here. This is one of my favorite places to go stay. After hiking, camping, and enjoying the mountains, head down to the Salmon for a swim! Watch out for black bears, rattlesnakes, mountain goats in the area.

Rustic campground close to Heavens Gate lookout and trails in the Hells Gate Wilderness

After 45 minutes drive on dirt road we reached this rustic campground and had it all to our selves the first night. There are pit toilets, no trash, no water. We loved the loneliness and the spacious sites in a little fir wood close to a 0.2 trail to the wonderful clear little lake next by and only two miles from the Heavens Gate Fire lookout that is staffed for three months a year. We were lucky to meet and chat with the couple taking care of it learning a lot about local fires, mountain ranges and enjoying time on top of one of the most beautiful lookouts in the area with views of four states.
