I found a couple of old threads about floating these two - but I guess it doesn't hurt to try for new information. If one were to float down the Maclaren to the Susitna, how much trouble would it be to motor back up to the bridge on the Su? Secondarily, if one were to put in at the bridge on the Su, how far up could he motor before floating back down? I'm consulting all the satellite imagery, aerial photography, and topo maps that I have at my disposal, but I can't get much of a read on the navigability of the water. I know looks can be deceiving, but every time I've crossed the river on the Denali it has appeared to be rather navigable as far upstream and downstream as I could see.
I should say that it has looked ok when I have crossed in the summer. It was rather frozen Saturday.
Thanks in advance for any information you can provide. If this is a workable float, it could become a spring bear/fall moose hunt... in which case I might be asking around for a partner to go along. Anybody interested?
