River Description


Posted to the old awa.org website, 4/11/95:

Jarvis Creek is a glacier-fed river flowing north out of the eastern segment of the Alaska Range. From the confluence of McCumber Creek, Jarvis Creek Canyon contains one of the classic whitewater runs in this state containing five miles of continuous Class IV water with three Class V rapids. The put-in for the whitewater involves driving the Old Coal Mine Road to its intersection with the four mile trail that follows Sargent Creek To Jarvis Creek.

The Alaska Dept. of Natural Resources (DNR) has leased the mining rights to a company that plans to extract coal in the watershed of Jarvis Creek. The proposed mine would disrupt the local environment and could interfere with public access to this creek and surrounding areas.
