Salmon River - Piece of Cake Run (Sunbeam to Torreys)

Idaho-US  

Description

This run starts off with the Piece of Cake Rapid which gives this run its name.  The Salmon is a little busier here in the heart of the canyon as the river makes a straight shot directly to the east.  This area also has the Narrows.  

Highway 75 follows the river the whole way but can't be used reliably to scout everything on this run.  The highway and the river compete for real estate in the canyon bottom.

Higher flows brings a more class IV feel to this run while lower flows drop it down to III or III+.
