“River of No Return” Float Trips
North fork guides whitewater vacation trips on this pristine wilderness river begin at the end of the Salmon River road (Corn Creek Campground) and proceed directly into the 90-mile long “River of No Return” Wilderness. In order to traverse the canyon , one must either float all the way through to the road’s end at the western edge, fly out from secluded airstrips or jet boat back up to corn creek. (Jet back is available and recommend instead of shuttling vehicles as it adds to the experience)
