Fodor's Review

This is a relatively easy way to take in the natural splendor of the Eagle Cap Wilderness and reach Baker City without backtracking to La Grande. The three-hour trip from Joseph to Baker City, designated the Hells Canyon Scenic Byway, winds through the national forest and part of Hells Canyon Recreation Area, passing over forested mountains, creeks, and rivers. Before you travel the loop, check with the Forest Service about road conditions; the route can be impassable when snowed over. From Joseph, take Hwy. 350 east for 8 miles, turn south onto Forest Service Rd. 39, and continue until it meets Hwy. 86, which winds past the town of Halfway and then continues to Baker City.
