Birch Creek
The Bureau of Land Management manages 113 miles of Birch Creek as a Wild River under the National Wild and Scenic Rivers Act (WSRA, PL 90-542) of 1968. The river continues through State, Private and National Wildlife Refuge land for a total of 344 miles before emptying into the Yukon River about halfway between Fort Yukon and Beaver.

Birch Creek has road access at its headwaters at MP 94 of the Steese Highway, as well as at MP 140 and MP 126. This trip requires 7 to 10 days to float. It is predominately Class I water but does have some Class II and Class III areas. Birch Creek provides for a wide variety of primitive-based recreation opportunities. Float-boating in canoes or rafts, nature observation, fishing, and hunting are the major recreational activities. Attractive, natural campsites are abundant along the river.

Best Wishes
