El Diablo

Down the Deepest Gorge

Underwater volcanoes are responsible for many of the environmental phenomena we have today. At 1 mile deep and 10 miles wide, Idaho’s Hells Canyon is the deepest river gorge in North America. Rock formation began with a series of underwater volcanoes over 300 million years ago. Since then, Snake River has curved its way through, creating the gorge we have today. Hells Canyon is also home to Heaven’s Gate, a peak on one of the Seven Devils Mountains, where you can look into Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana all at once. An experience of a lifetime!
