Hell Canyon Trailhead


From Custer, the Hell Canyon Trailhead is approximately 11 miles west on Highway 16. This trail is maintained for hikers, horseback riders and mountain bikers. No motorized use is allowed. The 1/2 of mile of trail climbs at a steep pace with one switchback until you top out on the limestone crest. This trail follows a bench below limestone cliffs and provides outstanding views of Hell Canyon and the surrounding area. The last 2 miles follows a two-track road along the bottom of Hell Canyon drainage.
