    Default Running a boat up Eagle River

    Anyone ever done it? I know there are some rapids but are they to much to run a jet drive over?

    I wouldn't run through campground rapids, too tight with way too many boulders/bedrock to tear holes in your boat or flip you (not to mention too many packrafters/kayakers) but upstream of that all the way to the visitors center at the north fork trailhead could be runnable... as to whether or not it's legal, I have no idea.

    probably not legal... check with AK state parks, also lots of boulders that will nail your jet. Maybe check with ft rich...
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.
