Beginning in the Philip Smith Mountains, this river offers a wide variety of vegetation, scenery, and wildlife characteristic of a boreal forest on the south slope of the refuge. A small river with little human use, its remoteness provides for excellent populations of wildlife including moose, caribou, Dall sheep and grizzly bear.
