3-5 day floats for beginners
I've floated the Moose Creek/Deshka a couple times with youth groups and I'm looking for other alternative canoe/kayak floats that are ok for youth with various levels of experience.
Little Susitna from the Parks Highway to Burma Road
Gulkana River from Paxon Lake to Sourdough with a portage of the falls. Although there is a class II section for a few miles below the falls.
Gulkana River from Sourdough down to the Richardson Highway bridge.
Chulitna River from East Fork to Susitna Lodge or Talkeetna, but only at low water levels. Higher water makes it rough for the first few miles.
Kenai River from Skilak Lake down to the end. But I would wait until the king and red salmon stop running to avoid the fishing crowds.
