Hells Canyon National Recreation Area is a national recreation area on the borders of the U.S. states of Oregon and Idaho. The recreation area was established in 1975 to protect the historic and archaeological values of the
Hells Canyon area and the area of the Snake River between Hells Canyon Dam and the Oregon-Washington border. The natural-color image of Hells Canyon was captured by NASA's Landsat-7 satellite on September 19, 2002. Roughly 215,000 acres (900 km2) of the recreation area are designated the Hells Canyon Wilderness. There are nearly 900 miles (1,400 km) of hiking trails in the recreation area. The largest portion of the area lies in eastern Wallowa County, Oregon. Smaller portions lie in southwestern Idaho County, Idaho, northwestern Adams County, Idaho, and northeastern Baker County, Oregon.
