The put-in is located at Corn Creek Boat Ramp off Forest Road 30 in Idaho County. From there, the Main Salmon River navigates through the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness from east to west through Idaho. A permit is required between Corn Creek and Vinegar Creek (mile 79), from June 20 - September 7.It’s a scenic, big water river with rolling rapids and excellent surfing opportunities for kayakers. The rapids in order are Killum Rapid, Gun-barrel Rapid, Stub Creek Rapid, Rainier Rapid, Lantz Rapid and Devils Teeth Rapid. The trip also passes by Hand Spring Beach, Horse Creek Camp, Bridge Beach Camp, Stub Creek Outfitter Camp, Legen Creek Pictographs, Legend Creek Camp, Spindle Creek Camp, Phantom Camp, Alder Creek Camp, Fawn Creek Camp, and Lantz Camp. This waterway is perfect for family trips because of the beaches and pools for kids to swim in, plus it happens to be less challenging than the Middle Fork.
