Salmon River Canyon (Split Falls To Road Access)
Oregon is known for it's stout, creeky feeling rivers and this wild and scenic portion of the upper salmon river is no exception. The upper section is very remote and requires effort to even get to the putin (see access tab for putin directions). The Salmon River Canyon is committing and not a lot of descents have occurred here. Strong class V skills as well as ropework and self rescue skills are a must here. If you do need to do any portaging on any of the falls you will most likely be doing so with ropes as the canyon is very steep.
Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Salmon River are between a bare minimum of cfs and a high of cfs.
