Salmon River Trail Professional Review and Guide

"As the scenic highlight of the SalmonHuckleberry Wilderness, the Salmon River Canyon has been a popular hiking destination for decades. Starting in a magnifi cent old-growth forest, the trail eventually climbs to the forested hillsides above the water, passes a spectacular viewpoint on an open slope, and then travels past a series of impressive, but virtually unreachable waterfalls. The upper part of the canyon is less dramatic but still very attractive, with lovely forests and scattered spots along the river that are ideal for quiet contemplation. The biggest advantage of the upper trail is that it sees very few visitors, since dayhikers rarely travel that far."
