People in Weiser do NOT know this place by the name "Heavens Gate". There are no signs with that name ANYWHERE IN OR NEAR Weiser. Maybe going through Riggens might be easier. We did find the lookout, but no where near where it says. They...More

Although the sky was a bit hazy, we could still see the Seven Devils peaks. The hills were still green. One gets the immensity of the canyon. The area has picnic spaces and opportunities for hiking to see the canyon from different vantage points. Definitely...More
