    Default Crossing the Talkeetna River

    I'm looking for any information that will help me find a place to safely cross the Talkeetna River somewhere between the powerline crossing and Larson Creek. I will be using an Arctic Cat Prowler (side-by-side) and other 4- wheeler ATVs. Heip?

    You may want to check with fish and game regarding location or needing a permit since that is a salmon stream.

    Too wide for the bridge, which is what I use. Not certain you can cross it safely up stream until freeze up.

    It's not going to happen with a wheeler unless you use a boat. Even then, getting up the north side will be no easy chore without some serious trail work.

    From DNR it would be boat then ride. You might want to look up the other land owners in the area and contact them to see how they make access. Sometimes the muni doesn't have all the ownerships updated.

    Chase II is significantly downstream from where you want to cross. All of Chase II is on the west side of (Chunilna)Clear Creek.

    Chase 2 is difficult to access but it cam be wheeled into from the the Case trail.
    One fellow ive met on the trail spent two years building a trail into his property, 18 miles from the parking lot.
    Ive heard of some folks with property close to the river doing the boat/wheeler thing. They just leave a wheeler across now and boat over from east talkeetna/beaver road area.
    There’s a reason lots are available.

    If you look on Google Earth you can see the boat and then wheeler trails. A lot of those trails trespass on other lots, but that's another story.
