Hellgate Overlook sits high on the cliffs above Hellgate Canyon and offers spectacular views of the Rogue River, Hellgate Canyon, and Hellgate Bridge.  This site has been designated a Watchable Wildlife area for viewing osprey, great blue heron, waterfowl, and cliff swallows.  The best viewing season is from May through October. Parking is available in a small lot adjacent to the road.  It is dangerous to venture onto the cliffs beyond the rock walls in the parking area. Check out the Rogue National Wild and Scenic River web site for more information about the area: www.blm.gov/or/resources/recreation/rogue/index.php
