Was wondering about potential put-ins for the Gulkana between Sourdough and the Bridge. I've heard something about 'Sailor's pit', but don't know where that is. Any other access points?
Sailor's Pit is about 2miles back from the Gokana / Gulkana Gas station towards Sourdough.
You have Pop Grove Creek which is a bit of a walk down hill however a lot of people do use it. You also have the Gulkana River RV Park which is about 1/2 the distance between Sourdugh Landing and the Richrdson Bridge.
Mind you Sailors and the RV park charge to launch your boat :-)

To launch @ sailors you need a pass from Gulkana Village corp. There is an easement but it allows travel only for wheelers and to park at sailors you will be on native land. Same goes for Poplar. To park at the trailhead you are on native land and need a pass. mile 141 is within the highway ROW and therefore you don't need a permit. Or you can ignore. There isn't much enforcement but they do write tickets sometimes.
