There is a large area available for parking at the trailhead with a small spring fed creek available for watering stock. There are several dispersed campsites along the trail and the trail is well marked at all junctions. This trail offers a panoramic view of the Hells Canyon country. In the early spring, many wildflowers may be seen along the trail. There are many occassions for viewing wildlife such as elk, bighorn sheep, deer and bear. Excellent fishing opportunities exist in the Snake River.
The trail is open to foot and stock travel only, since it is in the Hells Canyon Wilderness. Two miles of the trail have a 20% to 30% grade and one mile has a 30% grade or better. The Temperance Creek Trail doesn't usually open until late June, due to snow conditions. There are several stream crossings along this trail and it may be difficult to ford during spring run-off. Be aware of poison ivy and rattlesnakes that may be along the lower portion of the trail.
