The Middle Fork of the Salmon flows through the Frank Church – River of No Return Wilderness, the largest forest wilderness in the lower 48 states. The Middle Fork is
the historical origin of wilderness whitewater rafting trips (most last five nights and six days) and the most popular long river trip in Idaho. It combines a beautiful wilderness setting with 100 frequent rapids over 100 miles, hot springs, reserved
forest campsites, limited access and party size, and no jet boats allowed. In 1968, the Middle Fork was protected as a Wild River becoming part of the National Wild and Scenic
Kayakers with intermediate-level skills and a good roll should have no difficulty on any part of the river at any water level.
