Wind Wild & Scenic River
In the upper Wind Wild & Scenic River corridor
The Wind River arises below melting glaciers in the Philip Smith Mountains. Being on the south side of the Arctic Divide, the river flows generally south until it merges with the East Fork Chandalar River, about 140 miles downstream from its source.
Traveling through boreal forest, the river is small and sees little human use. That said there are more than enough moose, grizzly, caribou and Dall sheep to attract more than a few hunters in season.
The entire Wind Wild & Scenic River area is on Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
