Anybody have experience pack rafting the West Fork of the Maclaren River? Contemplating a moose trip this fall - hoping someone with some experience might be willing to share some pointers. Thanks!

How do you plan on accessing the start of your trip?

Well,,,,,, I'm assuming that you know this area is in the CCC use area boundaries of Unit-13B..... ?
If not, you need to get yourself educated accordingly......
But you do have a couple of ways to go,,,,, ie.... Horse Back in, set-up Camp & Hunt, and Pack-Raft Out when ready, or Boots on the ground, Hunt your way up the River, and at any point you can Pack-Raft back down.......
Balls in your Court.... :ninja:
TG :cool:

Thanks for the replies! Yes, I am aware that it is controlled use. I hunted it a couple years ago with my Dad (went in on horseback), but contemplating a bike ride in on the mining road and a float out using pack rafts. Was just curious if anyone has floated it and might be willing to share some perspective on what to expect on the float.
