Heavens Gate

Experience the nation’s deepest river gorge atop the 8,429 foot Heavens Gate scenic overlook. Heavens Gate is the highest elevation viewpoint in the area and offers spectacular views of Hells Canyon and the Seven Devils Mountains.

The route begins south of Riggins on Forest Road #517 at the turnoff for Seven Devils Campground. The 18.5-mile single lane, gravel/dirt road has a steady uphill grade and some switchbacks throughout its entirety, so is not suitable for RV’s or trailers. The scenic drive is generally accessible from mid-July to mid-October, but travelers should check at the local ranger station for current road conditions.
