Route Description

This is a great route if you are looking for a little adventure but don't have the time available for a longer trip. The trip starts at the Wolverine airstrip, elevation 5000 ft. There are two ways around the big mesa, one shorter and the other more scenic. Once around the other side you drop down into Doubtful Creek. A steep walled canyon in Doubtful forces you to take an adventurous detour over a rock glacier before dropping back down to the creek and then all the way down to the headwaters of the Nizina River just below the glacier.Streams: Route includes stream crossings. Be prepared and knowledgable about safe crossing techniques.

Certificate of Excellence

We are back home less than 24 hours and while every day in Alaska was wonderful, it is no contest as to what the highlight of the trip was……our flight to McCarthy with Wrangell Mountain Air. Thanks for a great flight that will forever be carried in our minds and hearts! Moreover, we are telling everyone to skip their junkets to McKinley when they go to Alaska; Wrangell Air gives the best view in the 49th. .
