Baker County Tourism – 62951

A Beautiful Weekend Along the Hells Canyon Scenic Byway in Baker County Oregon.


Enjoyed a beautiful weekend along the Hells Canyon Scenic Byway between Baker City and the Hells Canyon Dam, enjoying the wild flowers the first hint of fall in the Wallowa Mountains along the way including a stop at the Halfway Farmers Market, and some time exploring the towns of halfway and Richland, and surrounding century farms.


The Hells Canyon Scenic Byway is a loop that encircles the Wallowa Mountains, intersecting with Interstate 84 at Baker City and La Grande. During the fall the byway is an ideal route for exploring the regions fall foliage and autumn splendor with some great wildlife viewing opportunities along the way.


The byway is a popular destination for group tours and offers visitors a chance to experience small town Americana in small towns like Halfway, as they explore the rugged and spectacular Northeast Oregon landscape along the way.


Hwy 86 between Baker City and the Hells Canyon Dam at the bottom of the canyon is open year round providing visitors access to the deepest river gorge in North America.
