Directions to Pittsburg Landing
Go North out of Riggins on U.S. 95 towards Whitebird. About 30 miles out you will come to mile marker 222. If you are coming from the Grangeville area, go South on U.S. 95 about 12-13 miles, about 1 ˝ miles south of Whitebird. There is a sign there saying "Hammer Creek Recreation Area & Pittsburg Landing". Turn left here! Turn right if you are coming from Whitebird/Grangeville area.
Go about 1 1/2 miles until you go over a metal bridge. Turn left directly after the bridge.
There is a sign that says "Pittsburg Landing--17 miles". Follow this maintained dirt road to the summit (great photo stop!) where you will then drop into Hells Canyon. Follow the winding road into the marina! Keep in mind, this is quite a steep grade into the canyon, so be aware of using your brakes and we advise you to “gear down” to avoid brake overheating.
What to Bring:
- Lunch & Beverages
- Fishing License for those who want to fish (if it is pre-planned)
- Swimsuit and/or light jacket (depending on the weather)
We always hope for good weather, but it can change very fast so be prepared for good and bad!
