The rivers of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve offer visitors adventure and solitude. It is possible to travel for days at a time without seeing another person, trail, sign or bridge.
Each river visitor is responsible for minimizing his or her impact on the river corridor to preserve the wild and pristine character of the river. Please "Leave No Trace" of your visit as you journey down the rivers of Wrangell-St. Elias.
