Fortymile National Wild and Scenic River - West Fork Dennison Fork (Confluence with Logging Cabin Creek to Confluence with Dennison Fork)

The West Fork of the Dennison, from Logging Cabin Creek downstream to the Taylor Highway, is a meandering stream in a wide river valley. The river flows past numerous muskeg swamps, oxbow lakes, and gravel bars. It is floatable at normal or higher water levels, and ·is 15 to 40 feet wide. Average gradient is 8 feet per mile. Below the Taylor Highway bridge recreation use increases, and the river, until its confluence with the Main Stem of the Dennison Fork, is clear and quick-flowing, passing through thick spruce forest and occasional boggy low areas.
