    Thumbs up GPS Coordinates on Susitna River and Yentna River

    A longtime user passed these along to me last winter. The coordinates have not been verified, so you can use these at your own risk. There is no reason to believe that these coordinates are not where they say they are. Knowing GPS coordinates does not take the place of good judgement and knowing where you are on trail system.

    That is great info, thanks very much!

    Be very cautious using that list, I found several big errors while plotting the points.

    Also for Deshka Landing I would use this coordinate instead of the one listed below: N61.7211 W150.207


    Skwentna Roadhouse: N61 58'14 W151 11'41
    TalVista Lodge: N61 51'40.26 W151 24'17.50
    McDougall Lodge: N61 54'05.40 W150 52'52.86
