Little Susitna River Points
This is a take out option for the Class IV kayak run.
This is the first take out option for the Class IV kayak run.
For the Class IV kayak run you would take the Fishhook Road north from Palmer and travel 14 miles to the Motherlode Cookhouse and Saloon, formerly the Little Susitna Roadhouse and take out somewhere downstream at the several road access spots, the first of which is the Fishhook Road Bridge, or at a point where the Edgerton Parks Road meets the river.
If you are rafting, you will want to continue through the next section.
To go the additional 10 miles to Cook Inlet would require having some sort of boat pickup that could take you to Spenard near Point Woronzof or to Point Mackenzie off the Knik Road.
For anyone that wants to do a rafting or canoe trip, the best start is off the Schrock Road which is reached by turning off Parks Highway at mile 48.5 onto Pittman Road and looking for the unimproved road to the river downstream of Coal Creek.
