First the good news: The Salmonberry River is a great intermediate run with a lot of great rapids and beautiful scenery. Now the bad news: The long shuttle and steep road to the put-in combine to make any run on the Salmonberry a long day, and they usually reduce the frequency of Salmonberry trips. The Salmonberry River is located in an isolated canyon just north of the more popular Wilson River. Access is limited to a few places, which makes hiking out of the canyon difficult in the event of an emergency. An active railroad parallels the length of the run and is the best option if considering hiking out of the canyon. Views of the canyon rim some 1000 feet above the river are plentiful from the river. Character: forested.
