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.

I can't sing enough praise for the folks at Wrangell Mountain Air. They're a very professional outfit, they have the most useful trip planning information for the independent backpacker that I've ever seen, and, most important of all, they are honestly concerned with your safety. .
