Fortymile River Points
To get to the Middle Fork you will need to charter a plane out of Tok, Alaska to take you to the rough, bumpy strip at Joseph. From the east end of the strip there is a short trail leading to the river. The river will lead you to the confluence with the North Fork, one of the most dramatic spots along the way and on to the South Fork confluence where it finally drops all the Forks and becomes the Fortymile River.
From the Mosquito Fork Bridge you can do a 3 to 4 day, 50-mile run to Obrien Creek Bridge at mile 112.4 but high water is needed to get you down the Mosquito Fork. This is also only a Class II to III section through the main mining district of Chicken. You could continue from either start past the Obrien Creek confluence and commit to going all the way down the Fortymile, through the Class IV Canyon Rapids to the Yukon and on down it to Eagle… ...more
From O’Brien Creek to Eagle is another 90 miles and could be a trip of its own, with over half of it on the Yukon River. Maybe you can hitch a ride on a sternwheeler bringing tourists down from Dawson!
This take out is by car.
From the West Fork Bridge you can do a 4 to 5 day 75-mile run to the Obrien Creek Bridge at mile 112.4, with only up to Class III rapids.
