What to expect for this outing

This tour starts and ends at the Glenn Highway Knik River Bridge by Reflection’s Lake. Once everyone is checked in we will transfer everyone to Old Knik Bridge. Once at the bridge we will board our paddle craft and begin our journey down the Knik River. The Knik River is glacier fed so no jumping in unless you want a very cold bath. The river has a strong but slow moving current that takes us back to the Glenn Highway Bridge. Depending on tides and wind you may need to paddle at the very end of the Knik River but for the most part this is a very relaxing float. As we float, look for animals, admire the grandeur of the Chugach mountains and observe the many braids of the river.
