Corn Creek Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The road ends here. Corn Creek is as far as you go along the Salmon River before bumping into the Frank Church–River of No Return Wilderness Area, where no motor vehicles are allowed. The road from North Fork to here was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s; the plan then was to extend the road west all the way down the river to Riggins. Budget and environmental considerations eventually put a stop to that would- have- been highway. The downstream section ends at Vinegar Creek, a few miles east of Riggins in western Idaho. This is the main designated put-in point for rafters headed down the main Salmon River, and it is also a take-out point for people who have ridden the Salmon from Stanley or the city of Salmon.
Boat ramps and facilities are, obviously, available. It’s a pretty site, with plenty of pine cover and hiking trailheads available, but be prepared for plenty of activity (rafters coming in and out, jet boaters arriving, outfitters using it as a launching site)—this isn’t the quietest spot on the river."
