|Paddling Alaska - 1st Edition
by Dan Maclean
Alaska has few roads and even fewer trails—only a few hundred miles of maintained footpaths exist outside the cities—so paddling the state's thousands of miles of rivers and lakes is the best way to get off the beaten track.
Paddling Alaska describes the best and most accessible routes—thirty-six classics in all, from downtown Anchorage to the Matanuska and Susitna Valleys and the Kenai Peninsula, and from the southern interior north to the Yukon. Carefully chosen to accommodate most beginning-to-intermediate paddlers, each route is within easy driving distance of population centers, providing quick access to wilderness for city residents and visitors alike.
