Eagle River (Alaska)


Eagle River (Alaska)

There are three rivers named Eagle River in the U.S. state of Alaska.

One Eagle River flows northwest from Eagle Glacier to Eagle Bay in Cook Inlet, 15 km (9 mi) northeast of Anchorage. Its Dena'ina name was "Yukla-hina". The Anchorage suburb of Eagle River is named after this river. The river runs through Eagle River, with some overpasses being made on the roads in order to cross the river. Although most of the rapids are only Class 2, there are a couple of companies offering river-rafting rides through a small portion of the river.

A second Eagle River flows southwest from a lake at the base of a different Eagle Glacier to a bay on Favorite Channel, 32 km (20 mi) northwest of Juneau. Early miners called this river "Glacier River" and "Sitk Creek".

A third Eagle River flows northwest 13 km (8 mi) from Eagle Lake to a different Eagle Bay, 8 km (5 mi) southwest of the head of Bradfield Canal, near Wrangell.
