Several routes are described by which one can paddle upriver, leaving from Petersburg or Wrangell, and travel through the coastal mountains of Alaska into British Columbia.
Stikine is a Tlingit Indian name meaning "Great River." The river drains an area of 20,000 square miles and is about 400 miles long. It was often used by the coastal Indians who paddled and sailed canoes upstream in order to catch salmon and to trade.
The Stikine River is multi-channeled, about 0.9 mile wide and heavily laden with silt. Within Alaska the river flows through a spectacular glaciated valley flanked by steep walls and hanging valleys.
