The “Wild” section of the Main Salmon River cascades for 78 miles from Corn Creek to Long Tom Bar through the Frank Church—River of No Return Wilderness and the Gospel Hump Wilderness. Due to agreements that existed prior to the Central Idaho Wilderness Act of 1980, jet boats (permit required) also use the river. Thousands of visitors navigate the Class III to IV whitewater on the Main Salmon and enjoy its peaceful beauty each year.
