Summer time in Alaska is the perfect trip for a trip on Beaver Creek. The float itself is relaxing and scenic, with mostly class I whitewater. The hike out, on the other hand, is not for the faint-hearted – you’ll need to find your own route over jagged limestone ridges, across soggy tundra, and through ice-cold streams, all while swatting mosquitoes and watching out for bears. Your reward is an unforgettable hike through some of Interior Alaska’s best scenery, a landscape that most people only see in much chillier and darker conditions via the BLM’s extensive network of winter trails and public use cabins. Visit in summer, and you’ll likely have the place all to yourself!
The Bureau of Land Management's recreation resources and visitor services support strong local economies and public land conservation.
