Alaska River Guide (9780882404974);1993, p142
The article provides information on the Tinayguk River in Alaska. Rising from melting snows on several 6,000- to 7,000-foot peaks on the south slope of the Endicott Mountains, the 44-mile-long Tinayguk flows west and then south to its confluence with the North Fork Koyukuk. Coursing almost entirely through mountainous topography, the river and its surroundings are incredibly scenic. The Tinayguk is a small, single-channeled river, no more than a couple feet deep and 20 to 30 yards wide. For the experienced whitewater boater, well-versed in remote wilderness camping, the Tinayguk offers an outstanding opportunity for hiking and floating.
