Put in at the cabin on the lake. It's a short paddle to the outflow and a wave train leads to the horizon line and the falls. The falls are 20' and options to scout or portage right or left. Swift water, more wave trains and two more drops on your way to the flat water. In all about a mile of rollicking class II,III action. This water is cold!
Access with a 5 mile portage up the Eagle River Trail, or by jet boat up the river. Cabin has propane heat and is open from 10am to 5pm so you can warm up before you start down river. Don't run the falls without scouting!
This is a 15 mile flight OW from the Juneau airport. A floatplane could drop you and your buddies fresh and happy on the lake.
