Milk Creek - Chikuminuk Lake - Tikchik River

Post by jonfriedman » Sun Nov 20, 2016 6:33 am

Morry Steinbach, Vince Jajuga and I packrafted from Heart Lake in Togiak National Wildlife Refuge to Tikchik Lake in Wood-Tikchik State Park. We ran Milk Creek, paddled Chikuminuk Lake, backpacked into the Tikchik River and floated it to Tikchik Lake. We covered approximately 82 miles total over 7 days of packrafting and backpacking.

The two unique features of the trip were the run of Milk Creek and the portage between Chikuminuk Lake and Tikchik River.

Milk creek is a river of approximately 23 miles connecting Heart Lake with Chikuminuk Lake. To the best of my knowledge, a run of Milk Creek has not been attempted previously.
