The Knik River offers a short float on a glacial river. This wide, V-shaped river basin originates in the northern Chugach Mountains. In the high country, the watershed is born of glaciers and mountains, including Mount Marcus Baker, the loftiest peak in the Chugach Range at 13,176 feet. Flowing swift, cold, and silty out of Knik Glader, the river courses about 26 miles through the lower Matanuska Valley, in the shadow of Pioneer Peak, to Knik Arm in Upper Cook Inlet.
