There is so much to see when you embark on a Hells Canyon Jet Boat Tour with River Adventures, but we are going to give you a top 3 right now!
Kirkwood Historical Ranch & Museum
A beautiful stop on the tour, Kirkwood Ranch is rich with history. Having lush green grass, the original ranch house, and other outbuildings makes it boom with Hells Canyon history. Nez Perce Indians’ and pioneer homesteaders’ stories tell the canyon’s history.
Dry Diggins Lookout
This Hells Canyon excursion points you toward Dry Diggins Lookout. It sits atop that furthest most peak you can see at about 7,800 feet. This is the highest visible point in Hells Canyon. An original lookout was built in 1932; it was about one mile southeast of the current site and it blew away in 1967. Dry Diggins’ present-day lookout was built in 1968. You can access this lookout by trail. Although you can’t see the He Devil, it is just beyond the Dry Diggins point there. He Devil is 9,393 feet above sea level. Then the canyon plunges 7,913 feet, which makes it the highest peak on the Idaho side and Hells Canyon the deepest canyon in North America.
Hells Canyon Dam
At 32 Miles from your start at Pittsburg Landing, take your next Hells Canyon excursion to the Whitewater Rapids of Granite and Wild Sheep, then arrive at Hells Canyon Dam. Hells Canyon Dam was opened in 1967, being the third and final dam as part of the Hells Canyon Dam Project. It is quite the sight to see!
