A fantastic river route that hugs the contours of the Salmon River and then climbs to a high ridge to a scenic viewpoint. Views. Bridges. This beautiful river trail takes you on a tranquil journey through the Salmon River Canyon past old-growth red cedars and Douglas fir. After 2 miles the trail turns away from the river and switchbacks up a high ridge with great views of the canyon. You’ll complete a short loop and then return on the same trail.
