- Waterproof - Tear-Resistant - Topographic Map

National Geographic's Trails Illustrated map of the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness maps the largest contiguous wilderness in the Lower 48 in its entirety. The area is filled with steep, rugged mountains, deep canyons, and wild, whitewater rivers. The Salmon River Canyon runs through the northern edge of the wilderness and is one of the deepest gorges in North America, deeper even than the Grand Canyon. "The River of No Return" name comes from the early days when boats could navigate down the river, but could not get back up through the fast water and numerous rapids.

The map includes both non-motorized and motorized trails, snowmobile routes, Idaho's Game Management Units, backcountry facilities and landing strips, lookout towers, whitewater access sites, river camps, and milemarkers along major rivers. A large stretch of the Idaho Centennial Trail runs through the center of the map.

Every Trails Illustrated map is printed on "Backcountry Tough" waterproof, tear-resistant paper. A full UTM grid is printed on the map to aid with GPS navigation. Every map purchase helps support the National Geographic Society, an impact driven, nonprofit organization with global reach that uses the power of science, exploration, education, and storytelling to illuminate and protect the wonder of our world.
