[b]Route: [/b]Bush plane drop at the headwaters of the Talkeetna River. Float Talkeetna River to Prairie Creek. Heinous bushwhack out of the Talkeetna River. Cross the 40 mile plateau to the Susitna River. Another challenging bushwack down to Gold Creek on the Susitna. River Then float the Susitna to the Town of Talkeetna (with a short flag train ride into townójust for the novelty of it!).

Also some superb salmon fishing after the trip.
