The Frank Church River of No Return

The Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness is made up of mountains, canyons, and whitewater rivers, including the Main Salmon River and Middle Fork of the Salmon River.

Designated a national site in 1980, the River of No Return Wilderness was later renamed in honour of the late U.S. Senator Frank Church, who played a leading role in its establishment as a protected wilderness.
