Class I-II Red Squirrel Lake, AK

Swanson River Canoe Route (Red Squirrel Lake to Red Squirrel Lake)

With longer portages, extra time and physical effort are required for exploring this system. Generally, these challenges mean fewer people visit here creating better wildlife viewing, excellent rainbow trout fishing, and a more compelling wilderness experience. This route covers 80 miles including 40 lakes and 46 miles of the Swanson River. (U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service)
