Re: East Fork Susitna - Clearwater Mtns

I just floated this river again a couple days ago. I originally didn't plan to float the river so I did not bring a dry suit but I was able to make my way carefully along the side of the river to stay out of the biggest rapids. River level was medium-high. Still a pain in the ass on the lower East F...

Re: 3 or 4 day class II hike and float?

Cantwell creek is an easy and scenic float. Hike out to the headwaters from the town of Cantwell, spend a day or 2 hiking mountain ridges out that way then float back to town.

I floated the East Fork last week, starting about 5 or so miles above the crooked creek confluence where the tributary comes in from the North. I was surprised to find enough water for floating that far up with the river at about medium water levels. The boulder garden just below this spot was very ...

I believe there is a wildlife closure on the lower Sanctuary so you are not allowed to float back to the road. I may be game to float another river in the area. Send me a PM if you'd like.

Re: East Fork Susitna - Clearwater Mtns

I floated the river in the first week of September. All week long lots of sunshine and maybe mid 70's. It cooled off a lot during the clear nights but did not get down to freezing. River was probably running at medium-high level, higher than usual for that time of year. Rapids were a lot of fun but ...

Eureka Creek, no shuttle required

Last week I started out at Michael Creek on the Richardson Highway, crossed the Delta River and headed southwest up the unnamed creek. Thick brush lines this creek and the water level was high making crossings difficult. Might have been best to just get the bushwack over with and traverse the ridge ...
