The Snake River's barren landscape, within a deep, rugged canyon, is bordered near the put-in by mountains, the Seven Devils on the Idaho side, and Summit Ridge on the Oregon side. The canyon is one of the deepest in the world, since the Seven Devils climb 8,000 feet above the river. The high ridges are only visible on occasion, blocked elsewhere by the canyon walls. Boaters encounter the Snake's most difficult rapids in the first 8 miles below the put-in at Hells Canyon Dam. Class II and III rapids dot the river to Pittsburgh Landing, the take-out for the Wild and Scenic stretch.
