ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the Fortymile River in Alaska. The river's five forks begin as numerous small, clear headwater streams. It is a major tributary of the Yukon River and flows northeasterly to empty into the Yukon in Canada. Fortymile offers a mining history, scenic country and a road accessible river trip. The North Fork of the river is formed by the confluence of Slate and Independence creeks, that flow from mountains in the Yukon-Tanana Uplands. While the South Fork is formed by the merging of Mosquito and Dennison forks and flows east, then turns sharply and flows north for 23 miles to its confluence with the North Fork.
