Product Details

This 2.3 million acre Idaho wilderness is carved by the Salmon River into a maze of deep canyons and rugged peaks. In the third edition, which includes for the first time GPS co-ordinates for the trailheads, 101 trails are described.


"The great contribution of this book is not only to make the almost inaccessible accessible to the outdoor person, but also to permit the armchair enjoyment of someone who will explore this vast area only through Margaret’s words and eyes." – Bethine Church  


The Salmon River and its tributaries have carved the Frank Church - River of No Return Wilderness into a maze of deep canyons and isolated peaks. From any high point a gigantic relief map of ridges extends to distant blue crags. The crags and ridges hide cobalt blue lakes and bubbling hot springs. 


In most sections, the footprints you see will be those of elk and deer, not humans.
