The run requires a bush plane flight out of Tok to Joseph Airstrip on the Middle Fork. About
halfway into the trip you join the North Fork, and then later the South Fork. The trip includes Bald Eagle
Rapids, The Chute, The Kink (a site, ususally portaged, where miners blasted a shortcut for the river at
a meander bend so they could work the river bed), and The Falls. River runners can continue
downstream and run the Fortymile
River out to the Yukon River, including a loop through Canada, and
finish off the trip in Eagle.
