Hiking the Middle Fork of the Salmon River is an unforgettable experience. For all but the last 20 miles, where the river enters Impassable Canyon, there is a trail along the Middle Fork Salmon. From the main trail, numerous paths veer away and go up canyons and creeks. Most camps have nearby trails that provide opportunities for guided and unescorted hiking. Guests joining Idaho River Journeys on the Middle Fork will be with a crew that knows the canyon well and enjoys hiking. If you are a trail runner, our crew will tell you about routes that are exquisite and offer a range of difficulty from flat spectacular terrain to rigorous runs involving dramatic changes in elevation. Some of the most beautiful runs in the world are found along the Middle Fork.
