|Galice is the name of a community beyond Hellgate Canyon.|
Hellgate. Such a fitting name. With 250' deep jagged rock canyon walls this section of the Rogue River truly is hellish. Hellgate Recreation Area is 27 miles of rapids.
Hellgate Recreation Area the Rogue River begins relatively wide and slow, moving through agricultural fields, foothills, and a lot of private property interspersed with public land. Downstream, the downriver the canyon gets progressively deeper and rockier and civilization is far away even though a road is always within a quarter mile of the river's edge.

|This park has a lovely campground but the tree limbs are too low to allow us to maneuver Mona into it.|
