This route is mostly outside the parklands, except the float down the Agagashok.
We took a week or ten days (don't recall) in 2018 walking amazing caribou trails across the southeastern Baird Mountains and then floating the crystalline Agashashashok ("Aggie") to the Noatak (= "Sloatak"). The Lower Noatak was a hard row to hoe, what with no flow and headwinds. We caught a boat ride the last ten miles to Kotzebue after helping an older local couple pick blueberries for a few hours.
This, too, is a really beautiful walk on a class I river that moves fast enough to make it worth while, but we did all the boating in a day. So it's more like a week long walk followed by a day long float, but oh my god was the walking great and the easy float beautiful.
The Brooks Range and everything north of the Brooks Range. Includes the Noatak and Seward Peninsula.
