Re: South Fork of Eagle River

Ran the upper and middle section of south fork today, USGS on ship creek had the river at 6.1. The upper has the perfect amount of water. Lots of continous class III water. The middle was also fun, no real wood in the river.

Re: Mclaren Summit/Eureka Cr./Delta R. August 11-13

Could you do a Saturday morning start?? I'd be up for a long hike/packraft. I might be able to do a Friday morning start, I for sure can't get off for Thursday. Give me a call at 907-444-2978 to discuss.

Re: Macleren Summit

Ran it this past weekend. Ended up hiking most of it due to the rock gardens. Needed much higher water. If I do it again I will make sure to wait tell periods of heavy rain or right in the spring during high water. However the hiking was amazing! I got to see my first wolverine.

Re: First rivers ready?

I Did a Willow Redgate to Shirley town bridge run yesterday. Water was too low. USGS site had it at 250 CFS. Ended up walking a few of the wider sections due to the low water.

Re: Macleren Summit

Thanks for the information. I think I may have to try this trip this summer. Just noticed I put Landmark gap lake, when I meant Glacier gap lake.

Macleren Summit

Hi I was wondering if Rock Creek on the Denali highway has enough water for a packraft. I was thinking a fun trip would be Macleren summit to Sevenmile Lake hike to Landmark gap lake out to the highway on rock creek then ride my bike to Macleren Summit.

trip recomendations

Hi,
I'm new to Packrafting. I've used my packraft on Campbell Creek here in town a few times and also the Upper Kenai. I'm kind of looking for a few recomendations for some day/overnight packraft trips. Any help is much appreciated.
