Rock slide closes Hells Canyon road

Forest Service Road 3810 toward the Hells Canyon Creek Visitor Center is expected to remain closed for a week or more due to a rock slide.

Baker City, Ore. -- A Forest Service road in the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area is expected to be closed for more than a week due to a rock slide.

Access is cut off to the Hells Canyon Dam boat launch and the Hells Canyon Creek Visitor Center. Repair crews face ongoing winter storms, which is impeding their progress.

For updated information on the closure, contact Idaho Power’s road status line at 541-785-7251.
