The Tinayguk is a small, singlechanneled river, generally no more than a couple feet deep and 20 to 30 yards wide. For its upper 15 miles, the Tmayguk flows west against the jagged peaks of the Arctic Divide, beginning at an elevation of 3,000 feet. The first 12 miles drop 80 feet per mile; some call this section unrunnable. Others say this is some of the least paddled, high-quality whitewater in the Central Brooks Range. For the last 32 miles, the river drops an average of 25 feet per mile to its confluence with the North Fork at an elevation of 1,200 feet.
