Seven Devils Mountains are on of Idaho's highest mountain ranges extending along the Idaho-Oregon border which includes Heaven's Gate Lookout. The scenic view is spectacular where sightseers can see four states. The Seven Devils Range separates Hells Canyon and the Salmon River Canyon. Elevations range from 1,000 feet to almost 9,400 feet on the He Devil summit.
Seven Devils is accessed from Riggins, Idaho (18 miles) by driving west on Forest Service Road 517.

Southwest of Riggins, the Seven Devils Mountains are accessed via Highway 95 by a gravel road climbing over 5,000 feet.
Activities are numerous and include biking and hiking trails, horseback riding, hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and ATV riding. One can view raptors, shorebirds, songbirds, upland birds, waterbirds and water fowl on the Idaho Birding Trail.
