The Seven Devils are notable peaks in west central Idaho in the Hells Canyon Wilderness. They are above the east bank of the Snake River, which forms the Idaho-Oregon border. The mountains are part of the Rocky Mountains, and the tallest peaks are 7900 vertical feet (2408 m) above the adjacent Snake River, with few trees in between. There are several marked and unmarked trails and cleared camping areas throughout the mountains. It has several water falls and streams as well as numerous lakes. There are few campsites and those that there are usually are rather undeveloped.

Immediately southwest of Riggins, the Seven Devils are accessible from U.S. Highway 95 by a gravel road which climbs over 5000 vertical feet (1524 m) in 17 miles (27 km).
