There are several spots along this stretch of the road where you can take in beautiful views looking down at the Nenana River. The road also comes right down to the river in a few spots. We like to stop here, pull out a camp chair, and cool off our tired feet in the chilly water. If you're up for it, you can also take a dip and a bath in the river, but you won't stay in for more than a few seconds at a time!
The Nenana Glacier feeds this river. The Nenana flows into the Tanana River, which flows into the Yukon River, then out to the Bering Sea. The Nenana carries large amounts of glacial silt, which makes it a poor fishing spot, but its white water rapids make it a popular destination for river runners.
