ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the Eagle River in Southcentral Alaska. The river begins in the Chugach Mountains of Chugach State Park and emerges from Eagle Glacier as a cold, turbid, swift glacial stream. In its upper reaches, it is most known to those who traverse from Eagle River Valley over Crow Pass to Girdwood. To launch from the Eagle River Visitor Center, portage boats about a mile to the river by trail and then paddle through the sloughlike tributary that leads to the main river from the canoe landing. The best recreation area for beginners and families is at the Eagle River Briggs bridge day-use area off Eagle River Loop Road, on the left side of the river just a few miles above Eagle River Campground.
