River Description

See A. Embick, Fast & Cold: A Guide to Alaska Whitewater.
See also Upper Copper and Lower Copper. Not to be confused with the Iliamna Copper, which is 600 miles to the West.

This is listed as one of Alaska's top whitewater trips in GORP. Read their description by clicking here. (Clicking will open a new browser window.) GORP's map incorrectly places the Copper way southeast in the panhandle (it should be southeast, but not that far down!), but nobody's perfect.
