ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the Wild River in Alaska. The river provides an ideal family float for intermediate boaters with wilderness skills. The river small and beautifully clear, flows south from Wild Lake for 63 miles, emptying into the Koyukuk River just above Bettles. The upper reaches move swiftly; then the river slows to a meandering stream. Traversing the northern boreal forest typical of the Koyukuk region and Gates of the Arctic National Park, the Wild River is probably the most easily accessible trip in the park, and a highly scenic one at that.
