The Forty Mile River is a beautiful class II stream receiving little recreational use but steeped in gold mining history. Paddle raft along spruce forests and limestone bluffs while enjoying the solitude, scenery and great food with a small group of like-minded women. Our last night will be spent in true "Alaskan" style-cabins and the "world's best" sauna on the banks of O'Brien Creek.
