Upper Susitna River Professional Review and Guide
"Originating in three glacial tributaries on the southern flanks of the Alaska Range, the Susitna flows southward through a network of braided channels for about 60 miles, then curves southwest and winds its way in a single deep channel for 140 miles through forested country to Gold Creek on the Alaska Railroad, and then braids again for another 90 miles to Cook Inlet.A cold, silty, powerful river, the Susitna offers different paddling experiences in different sections. Devil's Canyon on the upper Susitna is one of the most formidable and challenging stretches of big whitewater in North America."
