The Cal Salmon River is a favorite run for many boaters, as it offers a lot of Class IV-V action in a short stretch. There is excellent fishing, camping, and hiking throughout this section. Freight Train and Cascade are bucket-list Class V rapids.
You can find our Cal Salmon guidebook and map here.
