Class III-IV Salmon River, ID

Main Salmon (Vinegar Creek to Spring Bar)

This is a wonderful section of river immediately downstream of the more well-known Main Salmon which is the classic multiday trip. This river segment flows for 28 miles among pine forests and granite walls with the Salmon River Road (Forest Road 1614) paralleling the river. It provides great opportunities for day trips with easy logistics and good camping and no permits are required. (American Whitewater)
