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.

We traveled all over the state of Alaska – from Coldfoot in the Brooks Range to Resurrection Bay – to experience the outdoors and see the people that make up our state. Over 150 people participated this year, in order to see the Alaska that tourists never do. Our programs depends on a number of individuals to make it work. Your assistance throughout the summer helped make these trips happen allowed me to look after the participants without having to worry about travel. Unfortunately I do not remember all of you staff that helped us each time we breezed into town – I do remember though that they were all very professional and personable. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to you and your staff for donating your time and energy to helping these trip happen..
