Windy Bridge

From the Denali Highway the river cuts past the Reindeer Hills to its next access point at the Windy Bridge, just north of the town of Cantwell where the Parks Highway crosses the Nenana just above the confluence with the Jack River. Just below the highway bridge on river left is excellent access ending this 15-mile Class II stretch. It is here that the river bends to the north and escapes the Denali Fault Line where it picks up speed as it slices through some of the most rugged mountains in the Alaska Range. Six thousand foot peaks form the valley sides and the Denali National Park boundary begins on river left.
