    I have never seen the river / stream , I have go up many small streams , it all depends on how hard you want to work if it is used by other boats / canoes it will be easy they have cleaned the log jams an dead stuff out of the way , you are the frist it will be hard you will have to do it or carry around the log jams PS I did have a small stream that took me a total of 3 week to make it up
    1 week per year [ 3 years total ]
    [bring chain saw ]

    The headwaters of the Little Chena can be reached via atv trails fyi...

    I can land a Supercub on a ridge at the headwaters...doesn't really answer the question though.

    Typically people use canoes in small rivers to access areas that are difficult to access. Well... this area is not difficult to access. Was just trying to help.... geesh!
    Here's an idea... fly your supercub over the river and see for yourself how far you could go.

    Wow! Really....people use canoes for that? In my 32 years up here, I've flown over that drainage hundreds of times. The question is how far up the Little Chena have you run your canoe? If you can't answer that question, why answer at all? I'm well aware of the high country trails (maybe more so then you) The low swampy area is best accessed by the river...Do I really need to explain this?

    going up is not the proplem if you don't make it you can float back , if you go down any stream an don't make it , it is a long paddle or pull back UP the stream , but I have never seen the stream you ask about
