Main Salmon 5-6 Days
For any family looking for one of the premier river adventures in the U.S. the Main Salmon should be on the list. Big splashy class III and IV rapids, mixed with smaller whitewater and placid pools mean this trip has all the excitement one could want without having too much. The camps are often large beaches with big eddies in front that make for great games of bocci and plenty of swimming. The river canyon is full of trails to explore with many of them taking hikers to old abandoned homesteads where kids and parents alike can image what life must have been like for the hearty breed of humans who have made the canyon home decades ago.
