Location

On your way to this site, stop in at the Bishop Springs Rest Stop for a quick look for Rock Wrens and Bullock’s Orioles. Twenty-three miles east of the interpretive center and 11 miles west of Richland is Hole-in-theWall Gulch. Look for the Landslide Interpretive sign. The birding area is below the sign on the Powder River. You can drive down to this area by using the old stretch of abandoned highway downhill (east) from the interpretive overlook that runs a short distance before stopping at the landslide.
