The Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness is made up of rugged mountains, deep canyons, and wild 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 honor of the late U.S. Senator Frank Church, who played a leading role in its establishment as a protected wilderness. The area encompasses more than 2.3 million acres, is the largest single connected wilderness in the contiguous States, and contains four national forests. It is known for the variety of landscapes visible from the river, including wooded ridges rising to the sky, huge eroded monuments and bluffs, picturesque castles and towers, and solitary steep, rugged rocks.
