Baker City is in Baker County, which includes part of the Snake River and the Oregon Trail, the Hells Canyon National Scenic Byway, and the southern end of the Hells Canyon itself, the deepest rivercarved gorge in North America.
Baker City is located in Eastern Oregon, where miles of scenic byways, alpine wilderness, working cattle ranches and basalt canyons are still the place for explorers to make their mark.
This area includes the nearby subregion: The Wallowas.
