ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the Chatanika River in the Yukon Territory. It flows west-southwest 128 miles through the spruce and birch forests to its confluence with the Tolovana river. The river courses mostly through a mature U-shaped valley, with low hills surrounding the valley and with mountains in the distance. The river's lower part traverses Minto Flats, an area covered with many small, clear lakes. The Elliott Highway crosses the Chatanika River at midpoint and the Steese Highway crosses and parallels the upper reaches of the river. The river offers an excellent recreational experience with good wildlife viewing and a bit of gold mining history.
