River sights in Alaska

Hutlinana Creek is reached at Mile 129, and a quarter mile east of the bridge is an 8-mile creekside trail to Hutlinana Warm Springs, an undeveloped thermal area with a 3ft-deep pool. The springs are visited mainly in winter; in summer, the buggy bushwhack seems uninviting. From the bridge it's another 23 miles southwest to Manley Hot Springs.
For something wild head to the Ship Creek Viewing Platform when from mid- to late summer king, coho and pink salmon spawn up Ship Creek and the banks are lined with locals and visitors alike trying to catch dinner.
